Germander Speedwell 


Gatherer of lost knowledge


         Collator of curiously-curated lists


                   Assembler of obscure collections


and... plagiariser of plant names:


Germander shares her name with the wildflower Germander Speedwell (Veronica chamaedrys), this species being probably the boldest and brightest of UK-occurring Speedwells.  

While found in many of the same habitats and frequently sharing the same cobalt colouring, Germander (Homo sapiens speedwelli) can be formally distinguished from her botanical counterpart by her greater length of stem and independent mobility between locations.
