Crocus (plural: crocuses, croci) is a genus of perennial flowering plants, native to a large area from coastal and subalpine areas of central and southern Europe (including the islands of the Aegean), North Africa and the Middle East, across Central Asia to western China.

The genus Crocus is placed botanically in the iris family (Iridaceae). The plants grow from corms and are mainly hardy perennials, and are found in a wide range of habitats, including woodland, scrub and meadows.

There are about eighty species of crocus (of which approximately 30 are cultivated). Their cup-shaped, solitary, salverform flowers taper off into a narrow tube. Their color varies enormously, although lilac, mauve, yellow and white are predominant. The grass-like, ensiform leaf[1] shows generally a white central stripe along the leaf axis. The leaf margin is entire. Crocuses typically have three stamens. The spice saffron is obtained from the stigmas of Crocus sativus, an autumn/fall-blooming species.

The name of the genus is derived from the Greek krokos (??????). This in turn is probably a loan word from a Semitic language, related to Hebrew karkom, Aramaic kurkama, Persian and Arabic kurkum, which mean saffron or saffron yellow

Behold the Fuschia

Behold the Fuschia

The story of the Fuschia:

Back before I had developed a love for gardening, I was um, relatively clueless about the types of flowers (even annual vs perennial).

One day, being a new driver with access to a vehicle, my mother asked me to go to the store and buy hanging baskets for her and our neighbor, Mary, because the impatients were on sale. She asked me to pick out two pink or red for Mary, and a fuschia for her.

I came back with two pink impatients for Mary and two fuschia ones for my mom.

Apparently, a fuschia, and a fuschia COLORED impatient are not the same.

St. Micheal`s Cemetery, Douglas Ontario, dad`s final resting place. An appropriate Ottawa Valley send-off.

Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling

From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer's gone, and all the roses falling
'Tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bide.
But come ye back when summer's in the meadow
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow
'Tis I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.

And if you come, when all the flowers are dying
And I am dead, as dead I well may be
You'll come and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an "Ave" there for me.

And I shall hear, tho' soft you tread above me
And all my grave will warmer, sweeter be
For you will bend and tell me that you love me
And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me.

I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.

And I shall rest in peace until you come to me.
Oh, Danny Boy, Oh, Danny Boy, I love you so.

(The unofficial signature song of Irish Canadians and Americans)

'Declining' - Entry for 'Sound Brief' for Photo5 comp

'Declining' - Entry for 'Sound Brief' for Photo5 comp

This sound, when first listened to, sounds like something falling. With more thought about what this sound meant to me I felt it was descent, failure, heading toward an end or an outcome and declining. The more I thought the further I went down the track of declining, the decline of the natural body starting to occur represented by the spiraling effect of the sound, and so this photo was created. The Arum Lily, representing resurrection, and white Lily representing love, remain at the site as a sign of respect to the fallen and her family. (Natural lighting, no enhancements.)
