  • Strange parasite

    This is Toothwort, which parasites on Hazel roots, occasionally Alder or Elm. It has leaves, but they are underground. A very weird plant!

    There's something ominous looking about it John ... it doesn't look natural, almost supernatural maybe.

    But you've shown it beautifully, and thanks

      I think I saw one of those in a John Carpenter film.
