A number of the species flower in the morning and when the sun shines on the flowers in the afternoon they close up, but the flowers can remain open on cloudy days until evening.

Crocus
  Crocus June 16, 2010
The first crocus seen in the Netherlands, where Crocus species are not native, were from corms brought back from Constantinople by the Holy Roman Emperor's ambassador to the Syblime Porte, Ogier Ghiselin de Busbecq, in the 1560s. A few corms were forwarded to Carolus Clusius at the botanical garden in Leiden. By 1620, the approximate date of Ambrosius Bosschaert's painting new garden varieties had been developed, such as the cream-colored crocus feathered with bronze at the base of the bouquet, Crocus

Birdseye Speedwell
  Birdseye Speedwell June 15, 2010
The genus name Veronica is of apparent unknown derivation. It may refer to Saint Veronica of Christian beliefs. Oddly enough, there may not even be an actual person attached to that title. The name "veronica" comes from the Latin "ver(a) icon" or "true image". St. Veronica was believed to have wiped the face of Christ before his crucifixion. The image of Christ's face was supposedly transferred to the towel. The name "veronica" is a bastardization of the L Birdseye Speedwell

Medicinal Uses: The Cahuilla, Costanoan, Diegeño, Kawaiisu, and Maidu tribes of California used white sage or chia seeds to clean and heal their eyes (Strike 1994). One method was to place a few Salvia seeds in their eyes at bedtime. White Sage
