Cyanicula caerulens starts to happen

This marks the third year I have monitored colonies of Cyanicula caerulens, the small orchid which some folk call "Blue Fingers", on our block.  Last years action is covered in this post.

This first sighting is 4 days earlier than last year, but they are easy to overlook when in small numbers, and I may have missed the first emergence last year.  However, it is safe to say they aren't late, which is to be expected after what I expect will come out as a relatively warm, wet Winter.
