    • A strange parasitic plant without chlorophyll – it blooms in the summer in the deep woods, drawing its support through a symbiotic relationship with fungi on nearby tree roots. I remember them fondly from childhood and was pleased to find these right near our house this morning, while on my wake-up walk. Thank you for stopping in again!
