A few of my favourite things..

The Cat’s Whiskers

white flower spike

Of course, they are not really called that: there is probably a perfectly sensible botanical name.  But they should be called “the cat’s whiskers” because it is so apt.

  2. Thank you, Tom. I had no idea of either a common or botanical name, and your “java tea” gave me something to search. It seems it’s botanical name is Orthosiphon aristatus. Thanks for sharing the information with me, and for taking the time to comment.
