Popocatepetl, 5,426 m high, is not a mountain in the real sense of the word, but a so called composite volcano. The central crater has an impressive diameter of about 600 m. The volcano is still active, having spat out red-hot rocks most recently on June 18th, 2013. The Spaniard Diego de Ordás succeeded in the first ascent of the second highest mountain in Mexico in 1519. Afterwards Emperor Karl V allowed him to wear the volcano on his coat of arms.
Viola is a genus of flowering plants in the violet family Violaceae. It is the largest genus in the family, containing between 525 and 600 species. Most species are found in the temperate Northern Hemisphere, however some are also found in widely divergent areas such as Hawaii, Australasia, and the Andes.
Some Viola species are perennial plants, some are annual plants, and a few are small shrubs. A large number of species, varieties and cultivars are grown in gardens for their ornamental flowers. In horticulture the term "pansy" is normally used for those multi-coloured, large-flowered cultivars which are raised annually or biennially from seed and used extensively in bedding. The terms "viola" and "violet" are normally reserved for small-flowered annuals or perennials, including the species.
