    These beautiful little things are presently decorating the sunny spots beside the forest trails in Stanley Park. They greet me happily every time I visit, but I don't know their names.

    Do you know who they are? Thank you.

    Thank you.

    And I read that Silene is a Greek woodland feminine deity, so the happiness of these flowers' greeting is indeed appropriate. Carl evidently thought so too.
