Not the first time I have bridged this subject. I find the names, given by folk, to plants endlessly interesting. I moved here and found the woman who sold us this property called Tradescantia virginica 'Noonsleeps'. One can also surmise why the plant is known as 'Spiderwort'. Rather logical, actually. And, recently, somewhere else, I mentioned that a common swamp fish, Umbra pygmae, or 'Mudminnow' was called 'Spot-tail' by a local. He told me this with conviction and confidence, trying to enlighten me. I accepted it all with interest.
