Hands clasped together, palm to palm, at the heart.
Offering respect for the spirit that dwells within you.
With a nod to deliver the gesture.

Welcome to the Wednesday edition of all things openly threaded. I like the concept of reducing pesticides while stimulating growth in plants while calling it a work of art.

~

Roosegaarde worked with existing photobiological technology and distinct “light recipes” that are thought to improve crop resistance and their metabolisms without added chemicals. “It gives a new meaning to the word ‘agri-culture’ by reframing the landscape as a living cultural artwork,”

~

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature -- the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.”
― Rachel Carson, Silent Spring

Will try to be here to moderate as allowable. Upload your nuggets!

"By-the-bye, what became of the baby Biden?" said the Cat. "I'd nearly forgotten to ask."

"It turned into a pig," Alice answered very quietly, just as if the Cat had come back in a natural way.

"I thought it would," said the Cat, and vanished again.

I once had knew a landscaper who claimed to paint with plants...art in the landscape.

How about this fellow painting a tree with grafting? One tree with 40 types of fruit.

Pretty cool! (11 min)

Hope you all have a great day!

Yesterday I awoke to three inches of snow - today only the frost remains.

Enjoy the day! Pleasantry

The UFO’s are coming to unify us.

Spiderwebs are

...five times stronger than the best steel in the world when you look at strength-to -weight ratios. One interesting thing with spiderwebs is that birds don't fly into them. Why is that? It turns out that nature has a strategy for keeping them separate: The spider weaves tiny UV reflectors throughout its web. We can't see them, but a bird can.

Et al

Rain but swale tote survived. Yes. Young peregrine in front hunting at bird feeder. Bit of a lull so out I go. Pine siskins have a salmonella epidemic. But not contagious to others mostly. Conundrum. Remove food source and let siskins feed elsewhere or leave and feed predators. Hmmmmmm

Take good care everyone

January 27, at the age of 91.

You know you kinda grew up in the Hawaiian equivalent of ghetto poverty when your idea of “really nice furniture” is IKEA.

listening to a criminal case where a woman wants to get off probation while facing a new charge, and wile a felony warrant is issued.
My motion is a request for the judge to speak to a child in chambers about all things which parent with whom he wishes to reside. Due to his age, it is mandatory. The judge, however, wants an agreement or something...What should have taken 5 minutes has now taken 1 hr 45 minutes and counting.
We used to have judges that were so good at taking control, moving those dockets like clockwork. Today, if you are a Republican, you get to be judge.
That, and a valid law license, gets you lots of power, income, and retirement.

I read the damn code to the judge. 5 minutes later, he gave me my requested ruling.
Strange times...
This judge was a family lawyer, but he has forgotten every code and statute and rule he adhered to for 40 years. (months after he took the oath of office)
I want to retire before I become like him.
You think Biden is a problem? Deal with it way down below and you find it is a horror here, too.
