A few in full flower, some partly opened, some still just in bud. We've finally had enough summer rainfall to encourage these orchids to get going. They don't appear without a fair bit of summer rain. If it is not super wet they are confined to the wettest grassland on the block, around a couple of the dams. In a really wet summer they are more widely scattered in grassland generally.
