Here's a couple of photos of a tree round the corner from where I live. It is mentioned in The Folklore of Discworld (page 365).

the Folklore of Discworld wrote: a story told in Sussex in the 1860s, as recorded by Charlotte Latham:

"There stood upon the Downs close to Broadwater an old oak tree, and people said that always on Midsummer Eve, just at midnight, a number of skeletons started up from its roots and, joining hands, danced round it till cock-crow, then as suddenly sank down again. They said several persons had actually seen this dance of death; one young man in particular, having been detained by business at Findon till very late, and forgetting that it was Midsummer Eve, had been frightened out of his very senses by seeing the dead men caper to the rattling of their own bones".

I must admit that I have never seen these dancing skeletons, but I have seen shuffling zombies......well, sort off......well, it was Midsummer eve and it was midnight.....and the local pub had just turned out. :lol:
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

I thought it was some sort of orchid too,(jan! :lol: ) but my dad reckons its something else. IT doesnt look quite like one; did you know pitcher plants are a variety of orchid. :shock:

I think it's some kind of lily? Looks a little bit like a Tiger Lily anyway :wink:

Nice pictures Penfold. You know, it might be a bit hard to know exactly how the skeletons got there if no one had 'actually' seen them. :roll: :lol:

Here's a photo I saw in The Jakarta Post 2 days ago. I think the photographer must have been paid extra for this. :lol:

Looks very like an orchid to me. See here:- www.donbartram.com/plants.htm He has one that looks very similar, doesn't identify it properly though.
