Capparis spinosa, also called the caper bush, Flinders rose.
⏺️The plant is best known for the edible flower buds (capers) and the fruit (caper berries), both of which are usually consumed pickled.
⏺️ Culinary use of capers extends back in history at least 2500 years.
⏺️The caper was used in ancient Greece as a carminative.
⏺️ In Biblical times, the caper berry supposed to have aphrodisiac properties.
⏺️The name "caper" comes from the Greek "κάππαρις" , (kápparis) , whose origin is unknown but is probably Asian. Another theory by the way links kápparis to the name of the Cyprus island (Κύπρος, Kýpros), where capers grow abundantly.
⏺️ Flowers only last one day, but bloom profusely from May to early autumn.
⏺️The unopened buds are the capers. They are picked prior to opening when still tight, washed in salt water to remove grit, dried, and finally salted down or pickled in vinegar.
⏺️Unpicked buds open to flowers which are followed by oblong, multi-seeded, edible fruits known as caperberries
⏺️The caper bush is also widely used in medicine and cosmetology.

Trachelospermum jasminoides also known as confederate jasmine, trader's compass, star jasmine, Chinese jasmine, Chinese ivy.
⏺️It is debated where the name "confederate jasmine" comes from. Some dictionaries suggest that the name comes from the plant's common cultivation in the southern United States, while others argue that the term actually comes from Malaysia, and the former Malay confederacy.
⏺️The name "trader's compass" comes from an old Uzbekistan saying that it pointed traders in the right direction, provided they were of good character.
⏺️Its irritating, milky latex-like sap makes it resistant to the depredations of Australian possums.
⏺️A valuable perfume oil from the star jasmine is used in high end perfumery.
⏺️The genus name comes from the Greek words "trachelos" (neck) and "sperma" (seed), literally meaning "neck seed", and referring to the seed shape.
⏺️Trachelospermum first described as a genus in 1851.

Jacaranda in bloom. As known as violet tree. It’s got amazingly smelling huge violet flowers that look like lilac from a far. But lilac and jacaranda belong to different families. People believe the tree brings you luck. 
Нет, это не сирень. Это джакаранда. Его еще называют фиалковое дерево. Его потрясающие фиолетовые цветы просто удивительно пахнут. Есть поверье, что это дерево приносит удачу.
