Found two out of the three targeted species today, but in the progress scored a bonus. Christmas Bells and Hyacinth Orchid were 2 of the 3 with the missing one, once again, was the Snake Orchid, found one with seed pods but no flowers. The bonus was a second species of Hyacinth Orchid.
A surprise was finding a white Tetratheca (Black-eyed Susan) as these are usually pink.
