My April Challenge - Day 14

A bit grey today. A lot of the flowers were all closed up waiting for the sun to appear, which it did very briefly.

This is a flower (weed) which I find rather intriguing. Most of them seem to get eaten by animals before they flower fully but this one must have been overlooked.

You may call it Cuckoo Pint or Lords and Ladies. The central rod, which is apparently called the spadix, is usually a purple brown colour. Strangely this one was green. Maybe they mature to purple?

Here is today's offering . . .
