Garden Petunia

Petunia is genus of 20 species of flowering plants of South American origin. The popular flower of the same name derived its epithet from the French, which took the word petun, meaning “tobacco,” from a Tupi–Guarani language. A tender perennial, most of the varieties seen in gardens are hybrids (Petunia × atkinsiana, also known as Petunia × hybrida).
Men argue. Nature acts. —Voltaire

Hybrid Fuchsia

Fuchsia is a genus of flowering plants that consists mostly of shrubs or small trees. The first to be scientifically described, Fuchsia triphylla, was discovered on the Caribbean island of Hispaniola (Haiti and the Dominican Republic) about 1696–1697 by the French Minim monk and botanist, Charles Plumier, during his third expedition to the Greater Antilles. He named the new genus after German botanist Leonhart Fuchs (1501–1566)
The goal of life is living in agreement with nature. —Zeno


Echium vulgare, known as viper’s bugloss and blueweed, is a species of flowering plant in the borage family Boraginaceae. It is native to most of Europe and western and central Asia and it occurs as an introduced species in north-eastern North America, south-western South America and the South and North Island of New Zealand.
By discovering nature, you discover yourself. —Maxime Lagacé

  1. Interesting tidbits, Rory, I’ve never seen a ghost but I’ve felt their presence. It’s an eerie feeling and I read it can usually occur right after the loss of a loved one.
