How unusual? Is it a fungus?

Madperth....No it is not a fungus, although it does resemble them. It is a flowering plant in the same family as blueberries!

Do you mean bluebells? Its really pretty!

Truly not bluebells..... It is actually related to the azaleas, laurels, rhododendrons, and the bonny heather in the heath family! That is the Ericaceae family which includes Blueberries here in the states.

Ah! Another lesson! Thanks! I never would've thought of blueberries & heather together!
