flowers, shrubs and grasses etc / Re: Need Help to Identify Please

Hi Clive

Yes I think I have narrowed it down to one
"Others can infect several genera, such as the lesser broomrape (Orobanche)  O. minor, which lives on clover and other related Fabaceae."
as the one I have is on a bank which contains Bramble, Cana (bamboo) and Alfalfa, narrowing it down to the Alfalfa as it's
a member of the Fabaceae family.
But having said all that I could still be wrong.

Cheers

During late May and into June temperatures start to rise as springtime turns quickly to summer. Road side verges are full of flowering plants in all colours and cereal fields turn bright red with poppies and yellow with false fennel. As the weeks progress, spring blooms will be turning to seed and the golden browns … Continue reading Flowering plants – June in the Sierra de Grazalema, Andalusia

Yes, thanks Clive, that was our assumption too. Pretty little things they are, quite tame too, you can get quite close to them. Thanks for the reply!

Escapes I would suppose from pet shops and house pets that have managed to breed and survive... Much like the monks parakeets that are pretty much all along the coast from Gibraltar to barecelona now.... :)
