As astrologers and astonomers charted the movement of the earth in a elliptical pattern around the sun, they saw both mathematical patterns (longitude and latitude), and visible evidence of seasonal nature.
If you have some latitude regarding the color of your tiles, this won't be a problem, but if you need some verification that those attractive terracotta tiles really are . . . terracotta, don't rely on photos.
Physical surroundings rather than latitude determine the character of the flora.
Even so small an area as that of Britain illustrates what has already been pointed out, that the species of a flora change both with latitude and altitude.
As a rule, the elevation of the timber line on the mountains increases as the latitude decreases.
