A-Z Challenge: "U" is for Urceolina

Source: Wikipedia Article on "Urceolina"

A Fairy Flower Alphabet, by Cicely Mary Barker did not contain a specific drawing or poem for the letter "U", but I found this one on Wikipedia.  You can click on the link above to find out more about the Urceolina plant.


 Join Us in the 2013 A-Z Challenge!

During the month of April, I am participating in the "Blogging From A-Z April 2012 Challenge", where we post everyday during the month of April (except for Sundays).  Daily posts begin with the next letter of the alphabet.  This is my third year of participating in the challenge.  "CLICK HERE" to find out more.

This year, I have chosen to do a study on poet and artist, Cicely Mary Barker.  I am featuring her book "A Flower Fairy Alphabet"Not only will you learn about pretty flowers, but I will also be giving you a few fun facts about Ms. Barker each day.

That is a really lovely image of that flower, isn't it? It has a very classic feel to it. Very nice :)

Enchanting flower.

Lisa Claro said...

This is a new one on me, too. Lovely though! Is it known by any other name?

I wonder if the Urceolina hadn't been developed yet. Evidently poor Cicely Mary Barker didn't have Wikipedia to help her find a "U" flower.

No Copying!
