It dawned on me shortly after I posted the Love In The Mist images that I did not include a photo of the plant in bloom: I showed the plant when it was budding out and after the seed pods had dried, but not in bloom. So, here it is:
“Love in The Mist” is just one of the names that the Nigella plant, is called. It’s also known as “Love in a Puzzle”, “Devil in the Bush”, “Love Entangle”, “Fennel Flower”, “Wild Fennel”, and “Jack in Prison”. There are a number of varieties, including one, the Nigella sativa or Black Cumin, which is used in Indian recipes as well as other herbal uses.
