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.
