    Hello,
    My initial thought was that I´d found wild asparagus especially as I was told that many years ago it grew between the grapevines. However, I would appreciate definate identification of the plant.
    Many thanks.

    Not asparagus. Looks more like an Orobanche species.

    So can´t look forward to lots of asparagus to eat. Thanks for the identification.
