spencer.riffle I love this flower!!!

"While them that defend what they cannot see
With a killer’s pride, security
It blows the minds most bitterly
For them that think death’s honesty
Won’t fall upon them naturally
Life sometimes must get lonely

My eyes collide head-on with stuffed
Graveyards, false gods, I scuff
At pettiness which plays so rough
Walk upside-down inside handcuffs
Kick my legs to crash it off
Say okay, I have had enough, what else can you show me?

And if my thought-dreams could be seen
They’d probably put my head in a guillotine
But it’s alright, Ma, it’s life, and life only"

-Bob Dylan, "It's Alright Ma"

  •   spencer.riffle This plant is on the CNPS (California Native Plant Society) list of rare, threatened, endangered plants. It has a ranking of 2.2, which means it is threatened in CA, but common elsewhere. 4d
  •   nudenaturenerd Wow was it near a small water fall, or a spring? I have never found it in the wild. From what I have seen in the green house they need to be super moist. 3d
  •   spencer.riffle Yeah @nudenaturened, the hillside that the Butterworts and Cobra Lilies were growing on at this location was as seep, that was continually exuding water. The plants were dripping wet. 3d

"Fear keeps us focused on the past or worried about the future. If we acknowledge our fear, we can realize that right now we are ok. Right now, today, we are still alive, and our bodies are working marvelously. Our eyes can still see the beautiful sky. Our ears can still hear the voices of our loved ones."

quellebonne Throwback to July 2010, when I was doing bio fieldwork in Saskatchewan and suddenly came upon these enormous horses. I was terrified. I quickly found my way onto the other side of the nearest fence. Not like that would have stopped these beauties, but I sure felt better. #horses #sk #sask #saskatchewan #field #nature #awesome #beauty #tbt #2010 #botanizing 1w
