027 – Evening Primrose

By 10th February 2017 Mailart

Second attempt at returning our faulty mobile phone, this time to the manufacturer instead of the vendor.

The Evening Primrose is not a true primrose (primula), but is instead of the family Onagraceae. It may have got it’s name from the fact that the bees that pollinate it are generally active at night, but another little interesting fact is that is that it’s name in latin means, “one whose juice causes sleep”.

Hope they can repair the phone this time around. They did keep the package and sent us back a plain one instead.
