I apologise for not posting for a long time. I have been very busy and the plants have been scarce. I am beginning to photograph and catalogue them once again. I hope to file more regularly from now on.
I went for a trek in the mountains on January 2nd and photographed this beautiful fern. I confirmed with Dr Chris-fraser Jenkins that it is Polystichum nepalense.
