Luna Fortuna Secunda Columbidae Fos

Late summer, early autumn, there's a very rare flower, maybe only three or four of them in a year, in the whole United States. In Latin, the name of this flower is:
luna fortuna secundna columbidae fos
and it means something like
"good luck moon-dove flower."
As you can see, I am one of the lucky ones who found such a flower in my own garden!

I'm just goofing. That's Stella the live dove nesting in flowers I brought inside from the garden!


  1. Wow, for reals? They are beautiful!

  2. What a cool photo! I love the, uh, forgot the latin name already ... anyway, love the dove nestling amongst the other flowers. Quite rare indeed! :=}
