Description


Opening bell
echoes from the canyon walls --
raindrops on the river.

The sounds of rocks bouncing off rocks;
the shadows of trees traced on trees.

I sit, still.
The canyon river chants,
moving mountains.

The sermon spun on the still point:
dropping off eternity, picking up time;
letting go of self, awakened to Mind.


- Michael P. Garofalo, Above the Fog


..








Plumbago is a genus of 10-20 species of flowering plants in the family Plumbaginaceae, native to warm temperate to tropical regions of the world.
Common names include plumbago and leadwort (names which are also shared by the genus Ceratostigma).
The generic name, derived from the Latin words plumbum (lead) and agere (to resemble), was first used by Pliny the Elder (23-79) for a plant known as μολυβδαινα (molybdaina) to Pedanius Dioscorides (ca. 40-90).
This may have referred to its lead-blue flower colour (OED), the ability of the sap to create lead-coloured stains on skin, or Pliny's belief that the plant was a cure for lead poisoning
The species include herbaceous plants and shrubs growing to 0.52 m (1.66.6 ft) tall.
The leaves are spirally arranged, simple, entire, 0.512 cm (0.204.7 in) long, with a tapered base and often with a hairy margin.
The flowers are white, blue, purple, red, or pink, with a tubular corolla with five petal-like lobes; they are produced in racemes.
Kingdom: Plantae
(unranked): Angiosperms
(unranked): Eudicots
(unranked): Core eudicots
Order: Caryophyllales
Family: Plumbaginaceae
Subfamily: Plumbaginoideae
Genus: Plumbago
Information Source: Wikipedia

The flower calyx has glandular trichomes (hairs), which secrete a sticky mucilage that is capable of trapping and killing insects; it is unclear what the purpose of these trichomes is; protection from pollination by way of "crawlers" (ants and other insects that typically do not transfer pollen between individual plants), or possible protocarnivory
