Or not really, at least in Swedish I think we say “flora & fauna”, not the other way around but since my last blog post was dedicated to animals and insects I thought I would make this the flora post:
Help me, how do you search for names of trees and flowers on the internet? I never seem to make succesful searches for flora, nor fauna actually. However, thanks to Britta, I now know that the tree I showed last week is called roble amarillo / plateado in Puerto Rico. The name could be translated as yellow / silver oak. But is that really how the tree is called in English? It definitely doesn’t look like the oaks I am used to in Europe… Apparently the tree also exists in pink – both in Puerto Rico and in Egypt according to Marianne.
