we are a bit unsure about the names of the eaglets: what should we really call them. can you help us? i think that when Latvian school children gave the names they assumed that the smaller was a girl and it was given the feminine version of the Flower. likewise the bigger eaglet was given the name Cloud as a masculine version. now it has become obvious that the bigger is a girl and the smaller is a boy. What would the names be in proper sexes: Pukite as masculine and Makonite as feminine? we have just used these names without knowing really what they should be. -surely there can be a masculine Flower and feminine Cloud, can there?
in the Botanical Garden of the University of Turku a giant agave plant has started to bloom at the age of about 50 years. these plants live in nature in the Mediterranean countries. after the blooming is over the plant will die.
i'm sure this plant is masculine (though there are both feminine pistils and masculine stamens in the same plant)
In Latvian language puķe or puķīte can be only feminine and mākonis or mākonītis only masculine. Another sex is impossible. However there are men with surname Puķītis and some poets use "mākonīte" as feminine. So it's not a big problem.
