Have You ever . . .?

Har du noen gang strukket tunge  til noen? Har du strukket den så laaangt ut du over hodet kunne?  Da kan det vel kanskje sett omtrent slik ut? Vel, du hadde kanskje ikke sånn ‘gul plysj’ på tunga, men av og til kjennes det jo slik ut for noen av oss? Blæh!
Hils på den mystiske Frøken Nemesia!
Have you ever stretched tongue to somebody? Have you stretched your tongue as far as you could  possibly manage? Then you may have looked something like this! 🙂 Well, of course, you didn’t have that yellow plush, even if it feels that way to some of us! Blah!
Please meet the mysterious Miss Nemesia!
Vi har fått et nytt bekjentskap i vår hage, og da hun presenterte seg som
Miss Nemesia Sunsatia, så slo det meg at hun måtte ha sine aner under varmere himmelstrøk? Kanskje Italia siden navnet minnet litt om latin? For sikkerhets skyld så søkte jeg navnet på nett for å finne ut hva vi burde kalle henne på henholdsvis norsk og på engelsk, men – det ble ingen enkel sak! Hverken norske eller engelske språforskere hadde tilsynelatende hørt om denne skjønnheten med den laaange tungen? Så da spiller jeg ballen over til alle mine digitale venner i Norge og i det store ‘Utland’:
Er det noen som drar kjensel på henne? Og hvilket navn svarer hun til på norsk eller engelsk?

We have a new aquaintance in our garden, and when she introduced herself as
Miss Nemesia Sunsatia, it hit me that she had to have her roots somewhere in the temperate zone – may be Italy or somewhere – as this sounded a bit latin to me?
So – just in case – I googled the name  just to get an idea what her ancestry could be?
And what her name would be in Norwegian or English, but it turned out to be an intricate matter? Appearantly she had no English name, nor Norwegian?!
No liguists from either country seemed to have heard of her? So – I’ll play the ball over to all my digtal friends here in Norway and elsewhere throughout the world:
Does anyone now this lady? What’s her name in English speaking countries, or for that matter her name here in Norway?

    I haven’t seen this flower before, but on googling it, this is what I found….(Sunsatia Cape Jewels (Nemesia cv.) Native to South Africa)
    I will be on the lookout for it this summer! 🙂

    It’s a lovely flower and your perception is quite interesting.

    Here is what I found –
    This charming, old-fashioned annual has recently seen a resurgence in popularity, and for good reason. With a rainbow of colors available, nemesia makes a great addition to any cool-season garden. Breeders have had several new breakthroughs, creating plants that are much more heat tolerant with beautiful bicolor blooms and pleasant fragrance. Plant nemesia alongside your pansies in the spring and fall for added interest.

      Thank you, Eugenia! This tallies with what I have already found on this flower, however still no ‘English name- but ‘Nemesia’ (or Nemesia Sunsatia, which sound sort of latin to my ears) and , of course, no ‘Norwegian name’?!
      So I’ll have to be content for the tim being with having this lady as a cherrished summer guest that will eventually need a quick funeral some time in the fall! But thank you again!
