Interesting Fact of the Day...

Flowers from my garden

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