Description:

I don't normally "do" things without a heartbeat but this fascinating creation captured my attention. The lack of colour first made me think fungus but it isn't "fungus" season (is it?). Then I wondered "broomrape" but our book says they have scales.
It is about 8cms tall. Help!

Many thanks

I see what you mean. One of the problems with this stuff is knowing enough to know where to start looking. :))
