New year, new stories

Dear all, I am back!

I hope you had a great Christmas and that 2011 ended the best way possible. I wish you all the best for 2012 and that you can make all your wishes to come true. I also hope you are you ready for more interesting stories as I am ready to tell more! But before that I will reveal the enigma that I posted before I leave.

The husbands are the stamens and the wives are the carpels. They share the same house, meaning that stamens and carpels are found in the same flower. The child is the seed formed and the rooms downstairs are the number of inferior ovaries. The husbands hugging the wives represent the stamen-petal tube. Mistresses living alone means that there are female flowers (without stamens). The city center here means a lot of houses, a lot of flowers, so the flowers are grouped in crowded inflorecences with both sexes in the center and female flowers in the periphery. So we have crowded inflorescences with central flowers with 5 stamens forming stamen-petal tubes, two carpels, two inferior ovaries and only on seed formed.

Any guess? This is Asteraceae, the family of sunflowers and daisies! Congratulations for those who found out! =)

Please be alert – new stories will be published very soon!
