Good morning friends! Another weekend has come. What’s your plan for this winter morning? If nothing, come on! Join me!
I found this tiny wild herb at our apartment garden. Those pink flowers you are viewing below is very attractive, but visible only to the camera eye! I was dragged towards this plant because of the awesome seeds that were burst open and ready to fly!
You can see the flying seeds in the picture below.
Vernonia cinerea (Fleabane) is the name of this plant. This is called as Eli Kemi in Dakshina Kannnada, Karnataka. Eli means rat, and kemi means ears. The reason for this name is unknown. But, this plant is used in making Tambuli (a cooling curry prepared in Dakshina Kannada).
I had captured a few Flying Seeds of Vernonia cinerea (Fleabane).
Now tell me, isn’t it nice to be in the nature?
