Walking in the Learning Forest quite a bit last week, I have been surrounded by healing nature while rehabilitating the injured foot, I have enjoyed much conversation & exercise with Loving Husband because restrictions have been relaxed and we can now exercise with persons from the same household.
On one of these jaunts, Loving Husband stopped dead and peered at the underbrush. At first glance, it looked like a wilted flower. Upon closer squinting, I realised that it was a perfectly healthy specimen of a black bloom. We explored around the area and found other similar plants.
Some googling at home brought us the name of this unusual blossom: the Black Bat Flower. What an alluring name for a stunning find.
