In other groups (I grew up around botanists), LBJ-Little Brown Jobbie,
DYC-Damned Yellow Composite (now DYA for Asteraceae), and the Eastern and
Western Flapwing (nondescript birds between the size of an LBJ and crow or
small raptor). There was a lot of describing plants by family (Turnip for
some reason for Brassicaceae, Daisy, Scroph, Cucumber).

Here the predominant landscape flowers are invasive Oxalis and Aeonium
(both putting out lovely yellow displays). In the garden, a number of tree
daisies are coming into bloom (Rojasianthe superba and Roldana (Senecio)
petasitis), along with any number of Cape composites. Besides all the
Oxalis putting on lots of little shows, Pelargonium incrassatum is showing
its ridiculous magenta pink flowers, Leucocoryne is still going strong
(garden center bulbs, but still wow!). Lachenalia is in a lull at the
moment, with just a few, before the current crop of spikes open. Tropaeolum
brachyceras took off and tangled in the Bomareas and is making its
miniature show, and one of the Bomareas is in bud. Off in the corner is the
unlikely blood red of Geissorhiza. In the back, Ranunculus.
