The pink one looks like Epilobium angustifolium (a.k.a. Rosebay Willowherb, Fireweed) which grows everywhere from around here (NI), and all over Europe to Siberia and America. A smaller alpine species is E. fleischeri but this isn't it.

Look out for Elephant Hawk Moth (Deilephila elpenor)caterpillars (so called because when they stretch out they look like an elephant reaching for a bun) on Rosebay Willowherb (and fuchsia) at this time of year.

Hi Hans nice pics
I really loved the cake, but the one known as "black forrest cake" Schwartz wald tårta" in Sweden do not have Cherry is that version the standard there or a newer version?

It is one of the most famous cakes in Sweden (or at least in my family)

Kind regards

Hi Joakim ,

You ask the rigth person  ;D
The traditional "Scharzwaelderkirsch Torte" is made from :
3 layers of black biskuit - the upper layer is covered with cherry and watered with "Kirschwasser" - that is not water -that is Alkhohol made from Cherry's ,
cover with a second layer of biskuit ,also watered with Kirschwasser ,than a layer of whipped cream - and than the same again . After this the whole cake will covered with whipped cream and some cherries .
If you have eaten one piece of a real "Schwarzwaelder Kirschtorte" so you are not longer hungry - and you will have shure some alkhohol in your blood .
Maybe this is the reason that in Sweden are not cherries on this cake .
If you ever visit me .....

Greetings
Hans

Hans the Swedes call it Schwarzwald Tårta and do not have the kirsch (cherry) at all in the name. Does a "Schwarzwald torte" exist?
We have thin wafers of chocolate on top else it seems to be the same except for the cherries.
Maybe ours is only a nonalcohol version without the cherries?
I will have to test it when I can. Maybe they have it in Budapest. They have good cakeplaces and have taken all the best cakes from all around Europe and makes them in Budapest. Served with a glass of tokayer and life is great. :)
Now I know what to strive for :)

Joakim ,

You have to come to the "Schwarzwald" -here is the orgin  ;D
It is the same like for plant -here is the habitat !!!
All other are only fake !
You should eat in Budapest a orginal hungarian torta  like "Malakoff torta"
Try it 8)
If you come to Vienna eat "Sachertorta " .......
There is a lot to do ......

I'm interested in the Malakoff torte. I wonder would it go well with that alcoholic (but fiery) delight, the Molatov cocktail? ;D

Lesley ,

Go to Google -you will find there a lot of advices for the Malakoff torte .
For Molatov Cocktails is not so much written - but maybe you must ask the rigth people ..... 8)
