Botany Photo of the Day will have brief written entries on weekends, holidays and my vacations from April through September. I’m on vacation today. – Daniel
Thanks to Vicki of Maryland, USA for sharing this photograph (check out Vicki’s Pics@Flickr).
Drooping (or nodding) star-of-Bethlehem or silver bells is native to Ukraine, Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey, though it has now naturalized in some parts of North America and elsewhere. Missouri Plants has a good writeup on Ornithogalum nutans. Also, check out an 1885 illustration of the species.
Note to local readers: the Canadian Geranium and Pelargonium Society is having its annual plant sale and art show this weekend. As always with these plants, look for vibrant colours and interesting scented foliage!
