Interesting Fact of the Day...


Flowers from my garden



The frilly white flower to the right of the blush-coloured rose is a scabiosa.


Scabiosa?


Why-oh-why does such a lovely flower have such an ugly, unromantic name?


Turns out it was used in medieval days by apothecaries to treat the bubonic plague, snake bites, and skin conditions like--you guessed it---scabies.


And there you go.


Your useless, but interesting, fact of the day.


The beautiful scabies flower.
