So many of us are so hard on ourselves about not doing enough to make the world a better place.

Seeing these kind of conversations in my timeline, I've suddenly just recalled something Jocelyn, a 90+ year old suffragette, said to me a few years ago:
You are no good to the revolution if you don't look after yourself first.

She is so right. And under capitalism, self-care is truly one of the most radical acts you can take.

Look after yourselves.

Shamelessly stolen from a friend's Instagram story, because I thought it was lovely!

Clustered broomrape (Orobanche fasciculata)
These look unlike anything else I've seen on the trail, and so far I've only found this one little group.
They are parasitic, so they do not have leaves or chlorophyll. The sagebrush behind them appears to be the host.

Palmer's penstemon (Penstemon palmeri)
These showy wildflowers are growing on the roadside. I saw a bee climb inside some of them.
This is one of the few scented penstemons. They smell really nice!

Engaging with in an urban environment through street art and design

Engaging people with botanical street art and design is a good way to draw attention to the botanical world. Here, the importance of plants to people's everyday life in is highlighted through street art and design. By focusing on the plant motifs present in everyday urban environments, educators can shine a light on the deep historical and cultural connections that we share with plants. This could be a vital tool for those wishing to draw attention to plants in urban settings and highlight their importance for human existence and life on Earth, and as a possible route to counteract plant blindness in urban settings.

Hardy kiwi are native to Siberia, so they like the cold. The fruit is better than the kiwi from the grocery store because they're sweeter and they don't have the peach fuzz stuff so you don't have to peel them. They're popular here in Oregon. Our first Halloween here, someone gave us a bunch of these kiwi instead of candy

I found a #knitting blog several years ago that I've since lost and been sad about that. It was by someone (female-presenting, I believe) who was knitting around-the-wrist swatches and wearing them for several days, to test blocking and wear and pilling and comfort.

If anyone can point me in the direction of it, I would be very grateful! I think of it often, and wish I'd bothered to bookmark it!

"Illium" was another name for the city of Troy

"-ad" is a suffix that can be used to mean "the story of"

Therefore "The Illiad" is properly translated as; drumroll please...

Have been finding sprouted seeds inside apples fairly regularly lately, but this one was further along than they usually are. I planted it and two other sprouts from the same apple just for fun.
Today I learned that when a seed germinates while still inside the fruit, it's called vivipary.
