Lathraea clandestina

Dear friends, blog-followers or ocasional visitors,
I left for a phototrip to Crete. So I'm posting some images from last year (about the same period) for a little while. (No mosses anymore ...)
I'm not giving any further explanation on these images, but the title is the scientific name of the species so for those who are interested - see Google :-)

Please DO comment these images, but I apologize for the delayed answers I hope to catch up again about 18 april. Meanwhile I hope you can enjoy this "older" work!

Lovely and soft image. I had to look it up and I got this.. "Lathraea clandestina, the 'Purple toothwort', is a parasitic plant, living on the roots of trees, preferring Salix (Willow), Alnus (Alder), and Populus (Poplar). The purple flowers, which appear in Spring, are the only part visible above ground."

@Self-Indulgence: Absolutely good info ! It is a strange plant !!! In Belgium it is not common.
