searching for a rare species

It helps when you know where to look for it of course, and finally, after overcoming some difficult climbing towards it, I found the Yellow Rock-rose on the edge of the devils cave in Mount Saint Peter's Poppelmonde valley. Also I found a late blooming species of the Spotted orchid, walking and looking around. However it was warm today and lots of people on the way I went over Biesland and Jeker valley to Mount Saint Peter and from there shortly to Caestert plateau, but I was tired of climbing the rocks and thus I turned to Kanne for a rest and back home alongside the Albert canal.
