    one flower at a time,please
    how ever small the face
    two flowers are one flower
    too many,a distraction
    three flowers in a vase begin
    to be a little noisy
    like a coctail coversation
    with everybody talking
    a crowd of flowers is a crowd
    of flatters(forgive me)
    one flower at a time.I want to
    hear what it is saying
    robert francis american
    thank you daniel you make my day

    If you are incensed about Canadian companies ecocide in Patagonia and ugly Canadian miming of such Yanks, the worst may be that of Gabriel resources or Aurel? in Romania Transylvania Rosia Montana gold mine where they plan the same horror as has already happened about five years ago nearby when the mine sludge mainly contaminated with cyanide broke through the shoddy dam and killed millions of fish and other life in the Tisa Tisza river in three or four countries, Romania Hungary and Serbia Yugoslavia.
    The politics is so abysmal in those parts that neither the Rumanians nor the Hungarians raised the alarm only the Serbs who didnt give a damn as they were already through a war,
    Later I found out that clear strip mining as practised in the Appalachians will be used to destroy all the cultural and Roman mine heritage by this Canadian company.
    It gets worse the landscape and rivers and mountains of Guatemala Papua New Gunea in that case Aussies too and now Romania are devastated destroyed exterminated by Canadian gold companies.
    Destroying whole mountains filling up river valleys with the tailings
    and killing all life in the downstream rivers with cyanide are criminal acts.
    The corrupt client governments are easy to buy.

    I think that the whole global warming huu haa and the idiotic war on terror are camouflage to permit final terminal inexorable unredeemable irreversible destruction of Nature and people living in harmony with nature.
    Patagonia good websites Madagascar Philippines
    Indonesia Outback Pacific coral islands I’ll stop there practically the whole planet is for clear strip mining cyanide pollution clear cut logging yes BC is a horror flying from Vancouver to Haida Gwaii clearcuts on steep mountains which will take ten millenia to regrow soil and forests city suburb expansion compare the landscape of Varley of the Grouse Mtn more than a half a century ago and profile of other northshore mtns as the hideous disease creeps up a mtn unfit for housing nor development all all all points to suicidal selfdestructive hubris, man as denatured psycho killing what nourishes him.
    Every square inch of this sacred planet is our last stand, we must fight the savage annihilators in the guise of develoment.
    Candians Brascan go home from Patagonia.
    Actually we dont want them here either.
    Just vaporise under any name.

    What a stunningly unexpected appearance! I thought at first the photo was wrongly labeled. It must have been some kind of sedum. If we ever doubted we should wonder at the marvels in the genome, this is testimony that we should!

    Ohmigosh! Violets. Never saw this before. Love it.

    When you consider how widespread violets are in cold climates and how many of those with the conventionally shaped leaves form small, tight rosettes it’s not that much of a stretch to imagine them evolving into something like this.

    Fantastic plant. I’m off to *google* up some blooms.
