Vision enhancer

"Said to be eaten by woodland elves to improve night vision."*

A useful bit of info. Slowing down, coming in close, crouching, improves day vision of these.

Slowed down. A patch of fringecups, Tellima grandiflora.

And crouching.

New flowers are white; they turn pink as they age.

The Latin name, T. grandiflora, means "large flowers". They're not. They're 4 to 8 mm. long.

*(From Pojar & MacKinnon)


"Se dice que las hadas del bosque las comen para mejorar su vista de noche." (De Pojar & MacKinnon)

Y para mejorar tu vista de dia, deténte, agáchate, acércate.

La flor se llama "fringecup", taza con flequillo. Tellima grandiflora, es su nombre científico, que significa "flor grande". Lo que es algo diferente de la realidad; las flores miden de 4 a 8 mm.. 

Nuevecitas, son blancas; maduras, se vuelven color de rosa.

I'm having to moderate all comments because Blogger seems to have a problem notifying me. Sorry about that. I will review them several times daily, though, until this issue is fixed.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
