Plants are like buses?

Over 10 years of recording I had failed to record Asplenium scolopendrium in a tetrad (I had recorded it in all other tetrads in my home hectad), even after specifically looking for it. Yesterday I found single well grown plants at three separate locations along half a mile of a path that I have walked several times before. (Perhaps they were missed before because of obscuration by more seasonal vegetation - they weren’t particularly close to the path.)

Me too, not plants but bones! not seen one for years!

or possibly spores got a foothold during recent very wet years and only now showing leaves well?

Most reliable habitat for hart’s-tongue: drains! Most urban areas have them. Older drains on unsalted roads are best.
