Comments


What is the point? No one can read the country names in this orientation! Just flipping it upside down is no use. Maps, if they have to mean differently (at least philosophically) must be generated that way.

Dear all,

Kindly ignore my earlier comment on "heading south'. Due to oversight I missed the properly oriented names on the map. I regret the earlier comment. Thanks

Hydrangea colors ultimately depend on the availability of aluminum ions(Al3+) within the soil.
