ericeugenius Camouflage penny. I found the copper ore in Alaska. It is covered in azurite/malachite and is heavier than it looks. The penny seems to be oxidising and is taking on the colours of the stone.
Thought it was pretty neat how well it blends in😛

ericeugenius This is the retreating ice from the Kennicott Glacier. It moves forward approximately 7 inches every day. Notice how it meanders through the valley, picking up rocks and debris. Only walking on the glacier in person allows you to understand how these massive hunks of ice can carve through mountains. The point where the odd snow tracks stop in the distance is about 25 miles from where I took this picture. 16h

ericeugenius I have 167 potted plants and each one has a story behind it. As a rule, I never buy any of them. I "steal" pieces here and there so that I can propagate new plants.
I adorn many of them with little treasures I find, like the feather that keeps this snake plant company, and the shells laid in the soil around it. I can tell five different stories, or memories, by describing everything in that pot. How could I ever buy them? Memories can't be bought. And no price could ever be placed on my plant friends

  •   ericeugenius @kittyyy401 I actually have a baby jade potted up for you6d
  •   ericeugenius @mfdoda when you say no sunlight, do you mean you haven't any windows or just no bright light? I have been successful growing plants on any windowsill in my house, regardless of the exposure! 6d
  •   ericeugenius @eekochy yes these plants live in here and are very happy with the light they receive! I have philodendron vines on a bookshelf opposite this window and they are also satisfied, it's a bright room nearly every window in my house has a bunch of plants crowded around it. 6d
  •   eekochy That's great! Windows are always in short supply, haha(: 6d

ericeugenius I am really happy Some great opportunities have been presenting themselves to me and I am so excited for the future. A fresh sense of motivation has come over me to pursue what I love.
I am applying for a position as a paid intern this summer, inspecting pests and diseases on blueberry farms in my area. Working outdoors, on my own time, and with people who share similar interests I just got done my first interview for the internship- which consisted of ten minutes discussing the job and then an hour geeking out talking about plantsMy kind of people Anyway, wish me luck!
This picture is one of my very favourites from this summer's Alaska adventure. Valdez, AK in July was blanketed in flowers and laden with berries. Here I am holding what I call a "hand-bouquet" with a few blueberries I picked. We collected enough to fill a bread loaf bag, all right off the side of the trail

  •   kimmcneilyoga @ericeugenius I adore amarylis plants, that's a beauty. 2w
  •   tango68 Ahhh, that's a lovely story, Eric! :) 2w
  •   jschrijn Beautiful flower 2w
  •   chenderhan Love these! My grandpa has huge stockpans of these guys 40+ years old we haul out in the spring from his root cellar. They were my grandma's pride while she was alive. It's such a nice spring ritual now, pulling them out from the dark earth and remembering my grandmother. They always bloom in the summer though. 2w
  •   ericeugenius @kimmcneilyoga thank you :) I hope to expand my amaryllis collection, there are so many different hybrids and colours as I'm sure you are aware. The blooms are very encouraging and cheerful in the middle of February 1w
  •   ericeugenius Thank you @tango68 :) 1w
  •   ericeugenius Thanks @jschrijn ! 1w
  •   ericeugenius @chenderhan that's interesting! I wonder if your grandma has a different variety that blooms in summer, or maybe they are just on the summer bloom cycle. We plant ours outside all summer and then inside in the winter. They never bloom in summer but send up there leaves and then die back while inside, then bloom in February. I'll have to play around with them and see if I can get some blooms this spring! 1w

ericeugenius These fellas must have been hungry. They saw me inside and walked right up to the glass door, waiting for some bread. Never fed them before now. 2w

ericeugenius Hope, Alaska. An appropriate name for a beautiful place. We stayed here for about four days and made some good friends, ate fresh caught salmon, and enjoyed the best campsite in town 2w
