Such a cute name for the Mountain Avens Dryas octopetala --'fjallabruđur' (meaning 'Mountain Bride', the Norwegian name of this species, reinrose ('Reindeer Rose') pales in comparison) :)

Interestingly, according to Wiki, the flower is called "Chounosuke-sou" in Japan.  The species was first collected by Chounosuke Sugawa, assistant of the Russian botanist Carl Johann Maximovicz.  "Sou" means "plant" and is the common tag to add the Japanese names of plants.

Just got back from a cruise in the Caribbean. I kind of like the attitude on Union Island....
