enchanter's nightshade

I thought I might help out some of the less well favoured blogs (for example see by providing pictures of flowers they think they have seen in the woods. According to the boss it was known to the anglo saxons as aelfthone and they used it as a protection against elves; it does not appear to have worked well locally. It is a very small flower and has only two very notched petals. It likes dark woods. At the top left of this pic you can see the seeds covered in bristles which are specially designed for lurcher coats.
