Bells of Ireland

These kinda look like alien antennas, don’t you think? They’re called Bells of Ireland, or Molucca Balm, and are Native to western Asia. Interesting fact, the name “Molucca balm” was applied mistakenly, for at one time they were thought to be natives of the Molucca Islands (I love little stories like this). I had never seen them before this weekend, but I love how unique they are. Perfect for a modern living room or tucked behind a laptop on a desk.
