Tussilago Farfara

Det er litt pussig hvordan barnelærdom sitter bedre fast en ting man lærer senere i livet?
Jeg har tenkt tilbake i tid og funnet at disse naturfagtimene med latinske navn på blomster som omga oss i dagliglivet, de fant sted i 1948/49! Og siden jeg ikke har studer biologi senere i livet, så må ‘visdommen’ ha blitt implantert da – i alder av 11-12 år!
Og selv om jeg i nåværende alder til stadighet glemmer ting jeg ble fortalt igår, så husker jeg de fleste av disse latinske navnene ennå!
Det ultimate bevis på at våren nå har ankommet, og at det pleier å bli varmere og triveligere med sosialt samvær, – om det da ikke hadde vært for vårt seneste bekjentskap:
Mr Corona!
Is it a bit weird how ‘child learning’ seems to stick better to our brains than things you pick up later in life?
I have worked my way back in time and found that these natural science lessons with Latin names on flowers that surround us in our daily life, they took place in 1948/49!
And since I have not studied biology later in life, – this ‘wisdom’ must have been implanted then – at the age of 11-12 years!
These days I am constantly forgetting things I was told as late as yesterday, but I still remember most of these Latin names from early youth!
The ultimate proof that spring has now arrived, and that it tends to get warmer and more enjoyable with socializing – if it had not been for our latest acquaintance:
Mr Corona!

    Sunshine in Sydney today, and were it not for Mr Corona, we would be at Balmoral Beach enjoying a walk and fish and chips.

      But, of course, you cannot! And there is the same all over the world, I’m afraid!
      I’m afraid this ‘corona’ business will take it’s time, and that it will be way longer than our optimistic politicians tell us! Perhaps even years . . .

  2. Spring most definitely in the air… 🙂

    Hope you’re staying safe & healthy

    • Seenorway says:

      Thank you, and yes – so far everything seems OK, but the way we live our lives has changed for ever, I think? Have you ever contemplated how we would have solved these challenges without the internet?

      • Missy’s Crafty Mess/Missy’s Handarbeid says:

        Hubby, and I were just discussing that last night! Maybe that’s why the Spanish flu got so bad.

        • Seenorway says:

          That and much more, I’m afraid! Think of all we know and may do today compared to the lack of sufficient knowledge under the Spanish Flu. It’s a different world out there in more ways but one!

    I wish Covid-19 would forget what it is and go away. I never took Latin but I took Spanish and French, which I don’t remember much of either one.

    • Seenorway says:

      I am sorry to say that I don’t think it will! And I very much doubt the people telling us that this will be over in a few months. They don’t know ‘the first thing’ about viruses! That includes the ‘ you know who’! This will keep spreading as long as people make it possible!
      With the current speed I won’t be surprised if the US will have 1 million infected by the end of April. I do hope I’m wrong, but the way things look this afternoon I’m not very optimistic!
      (Sorry!) Take care!!!

    You are good, remembering this… we read in Latin ” de Bello Gallico” from Ceasar. Somethign I don’t want to remember. It was most boring for girls.:-)

    • Seenorway says:

      We were in luck then? The only latin we ever experienced was the names of flowers and plants around us, – probably because they had different names in which ever country you encountered them! And besides – there are a certain affiliation between Italian and latin, isn’t there?

  6. Seenorway says:

    And who are you? 😀

  7. Tell me about it… Now what was I about to do? 🤔
