And in your color scheme, as well! Do you see Pasque flowers growing wild anywhere around you? Supposedly they're circumpolar at temperate latitudes.

Yes, there are some growing wild here, but they are relatively rare. They are called backsippa (plural: backsippor) here.

Lovely tulips and irises, Orin!

And the Stars of Bethlehem really are like stars (never mind that real stars are round, elliptically elongated or blob-like, but never hexagonal)! :wink: :D

Who cares, the Stars of Bethlehem are lovely! :D 🌼

They're just stars imaged with a telescope carrying a three-arm secondary.

<<Murraya is a genus of flowering plants in the citrus family, Rutaceae. It is distributed in Asia, Australia, and the Pacific Islands. The center of diversity is in southern China and Southeast Asia.

The genus Murraya was first formally described in 1771 by Carl Linnaeus in Mantissa Plantarum Altera from an unpublished description by Johann Gerhard König. The genus name commemorates the 18th-century German-Swedish herbal doctor Johan Andreas Murray, a student of Linnaeus. This genus is in the subfamily Aurantioideae, which also includes genus Citrus. It is in the subtribe Clauseninae, which are known technically as the remote citroid fruit trees.>>
