  2. In french, this flower ou fruit that I have in my own garden, is alkekenge or "amour en cage" (A love heart in a prison) because the red fruit is like a heart and it is closed in a gold prison.
    A beautiful metaphor. And in english?

  3. It is difficult to choose which post I most admire on this blog Sara. Your work is astoundingly beautiful.

    That said, I am really taken with the cage pieces. Particularly the cocoons. And the riddles..

    The Oiketicus kirbyi - is it not a moth?

  4. I think this is what we call in English Chinese Lantern or Ground Cherry. I like the French name better. :-)

    In Latin it is Physalis. Beautiful flower however we call it.
