See how much the landscape has matured since the earlier posts by me? I don't need to say more. The only plant I want to highlight in this post is the unusual Butterfly Leaf (scientific name: Christia obcordata; synonym: Lourea obcordata, Hedysarum obcordatum; Family: Papilionaceae), that appears to be a weed in the bed, so named because of its triangular striped leaves supported on a midrib that gives the imagination of the butterfly with opened wings.
