Gypsy Rose

By Philip_H
Field Scabious - Species of scabious were used to treat Scabies, and may other afflictions of the skin including sores caused by the Bubonic Plague. The word scabies comes from the Latin word for "scratch" (scabere). Another name for this plant is Gypsy Rose.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Cloudbusting'.

Best wishes,
Philip
