Ingliża (5502)
Ingliża. (Click on the photo for added detail.)

The weather’s cooled down somewhat and we’ve been having a bit of a wet week down here, which means that autumn is really here, and also that I have some time to catch up on various things at home. This week, though, it’s mostly had to do with the exhibition, which opens tomorrow. In fact, I’ve only just returned from hanging the frames at the library.

Meanwhile, I thought I’d share another photo from the series of flower macros from late winter. Today’s flower is the very common Ħaxixa Ingliża (cape sorrel, oxalis pes-caprae), also known locally as Qares or Qarsu. As the first name implies (literally, it’s the English weed), it’s a naturalised alien. The alternative local name simply refers to its sour taste.
