I am no botanist, but a couple of these look like roses to me.  Tell me what you think.

But first, a quiz that I may have posted before.  Answers below.

Of the 50 states in the union, which is the most northerly, the most southerly, the most easterly, and the most westerly?


Northerly - If you said Maine, go back and read the question again. It says, “Of the 50 states in the union...”
If you said Alaska, you are correct.

Southerly - If you said Florida, try again.  If you said Hawaii, you are correct.

Westerly - No, not Hawaii.  If you said Alaska, you are correct.

Easterly - If you said anything in the lower 48, you are not correct.  If you said Alaska, you are correct.

WAIT A MINUTE!  ALASKA? Most easterly? Quit pulling my leg!
Okay, time to look at a map that shows the International Date Line. You will note that the Aleutian Islands, which is part of Alaska, crosses the International Date Line. Go ahead. Argue with geography.

  1. Yup, and looks like a Flamingo flower and some sort of arum, too.
