A few plants seen on the path towards yesterday's olive grove post.

Above the pyramidal orchid and below the nasty smelling dragon lily.

A delicate crupina......

An italian gladioli

Above is a mullein, a verbascum for which I am waiting for an identification of and a tassel hyacinth.

This is the common dodder, cuscuta epithymum and is parasitic plant with reddish thread like stems and no leaves. The leaves you can see are on the host plant.
