Found this weeding my strawberry patch. We get a few flowers come up every year and I try and pull them out. This spring seems to have been less than normal.

First ever find one that is still a "bulb" and attached to a host plant. The number of roots is higher than I would have expected, as I thought they wouldn't need them as they are parasites.
