Plant latin and plant greek is often beautiful and very describing.

Anemo┬┤ne means wind in (ancient only? - Teofrastos) greek

Nemorosa means grove or wood

So it is quite describing


More info on plants' names

Took a picture today of a typical habitat

BTW On the matter of taste. If you loose one of them there are trillions left out there.

Pretty flowers in both shots and the rocks look like they have blankets on them to keep warn.

- quoth the raven''Nemo- Rosa''

Actually, I was inspired by a poem of Poe: Raven, in which the 'ominious' birdrepeatedlyreplying and thusreminding the poet there's no way tosee his belowed one again;Lenore

Eh, ratherthan a ready phrase,I simply made use of the latin word of 'nemo' meaning 'no one' and Rosa which is also a name for ladies as well as a flower, to writeas acomplement for your last stanza..

As for the matter of taste, thanks god ithas natureinclinedtoimprove with practice : )

IMO,the additional picture is the one you should have put first!

Thanks for elaborating, bahadir. Get it. Poetry factory. Joint venture. Always wondered why Jules Verne gave the name Nemo

Playing with words is quite amusing for the word sensitive kind.

Well, on the taste issue: you can be quite happy with simplicity, never needing the dark red. The light and blue works too, watching out for "les fleurs du mal"

Practising - oh, oh. Better start now. You can never be good enough. Hope you do not have to be perfect. Sometimes you get what you need

Thank you, Calicajun. Yes, sometimes it looks like blankets of snow from a distance. Never thought about it - spring is not a one man's show - nature is often cruel but also thoughtful and caring

Blanket of flowers keeping cliffs, and perhaps under vegetation ready

Well, to the dreamers and those who are weak at living


If nemo Rosa

always Nemorosa will be there,

waiting,

she can be as lonely as you,

wanderer in groves and woods

Be sure to bring her

parsley,

sage,

rosemary and thyme

Offer her warmth one cold day of spring
