Borago officinalis in the Royal Botanical Garden, Edinburgh.
Here’s my first shot with my new Canon 100mm Macro Lens. See my post about it here. Photo below.
Plants can be referred to by either a common or binomial name. Common names vary from place to place and from language to language, whilst binomial names are standardised worldwide. A species can have many common names but only one binomial name. As a professional Horticulturalist binomial names are more useful to me.
In the case of Buddleja sp. the common name “Butterfly Bush” has to be my preference. Today I took some photographs of the butterflies enjoying their bush! Photos below.
