Violets come in a pretty wide variety of colours in Burren, from a very pale, almost lavender, through variegated, into full purple. But these ones I saw on top of a mountain near us seem a particular intense shade.
This is Toothwort, a wildflower that contains no chlorophyll. It lives by being parasitic on the roots of trees, including hazel. Perhaps not the prettiest flower but still kinda cool. #wildflower#toothwort#parasite#burren
