A Fine Day for Triffids

With the rain pouring down from the heavens in sheets today, it wasn’t a day for wandering in the hills or going around town, so today’s shots are of some rather bizarre looking plants we encountered during our jaunt around the Balkans in the summer.  I present to you the Albanian Triffids, and if anyone knows what these things really are please let me know…

Triffid
The Triffids move menacingly across the meadow…
Triffid
Then they deploy all weaponry before taking over the planet…

  1. I can still remember the terrible effects that filled that movie! Had to read that book and watch the movie in High School. I hope they are truely Triffids, just closer your eyes during the next meteor shower.

  3. I think it might be a Verbascum flower plant. I think I have that same plant growing in my front yard. I will have to take a picture of it and show it to you to compare.
