    OH, I love that color. I want clothes that color. I want flowers that color. I want a dog that color. I want I want I want…
    How lovely that the size of the plant and blossom was added. I truly appreciate that. You are wonderful for sharing all that you do. Thank you so much.

    Thanks for replying to my whine the other day. I’m an amateur photographer and have lots of flower photos from zone 5. If you’re interested, I’d be glad to allow you a few for use here.

    Beautiful… It almost looks like a fluff of snow atop the sex… Or maybe the fresh stuff outside is putting ideas in my head!

    Exquisite! And thanks for the dye-making link. Who’d have thought you could milk snails?!

    Wow! I am currently studying for my RHS Master of Horticulture award in England and I passed the details of this daily on to collegues to have a look at, one of them told me that I “need to get out more” but you just caome up with such interesting stuff that is unexpected when looking at plants! Many thanks Daniel for this stimulating daily bite of info.

    If you are watching the British series ROME on the
    History channel 52 at least locally you can see the white toga praetexta worn by youth of the senatorial and later imperial family with a royal purple or Phoenician red border. They inherited this from the Etruscan aristocracy and is still visible in the robes of the Roman Catholic cardinals. The series Rome has good acting if a bit hammish and barely comprehensible British accents good costuming which is where you can see the red edged togas but is rather heavy on the murder violence crucifixions and assassinations. They havent killed off Julius Caesar yet but it is to come with no doubt gore knee deep and Phoenician purple bathing the screen red.
