“The resilience of aquatic seed banks is phenomenal. Given the right conditions, seeds that have been underground for decades can germinate."
Great story on how re-wetting of dried-up "ghost ponds" can lead to return of rare plant species, buried in mud.
Norfolkâs rediscovered âghost pondsâ offer up trove of long-lost plants
Rewilding projects reveal rare species preserved in buried ancient wetlands
“The demand for rare, wild harvested plants is skyrocketing, and many of these species, especially Conophytums, only occur in very small localized populations, so they could be collected to extinction in a couple of visits by poachers”
Friday is the best night for comfort food! Going full southern with fried pork chops, quick pickled Vidalia onions, mashed potatoes and a slice of vine- ripened tomato from our garden. Who’s hungry, ya’ll?

Have you ever had one of those creative days when your brain is packed full of exciting ideas & experiment plans… but come nightfall you need to switch it off? I can’t even relax w/ a book tonight to wind down 🤷♀️
Hoping a simple puzzle w/ classical music will do the trick.
YES to all of this 👇👇👇
Brava Simone Biles for knowing your body & mind, listening to the signals, & having the courage to stand up for what you needed in that moment.

Young girls need role models who show that it’s okay to trust your own body & instincts.
Role models that show that no matter how huge the pressure is on you to do something, you still have a choice.
Saying no isn’t always a weakness, often it’s the greatest of strengths.

"Plants make me happy, and in a year where an awareness of the vulnerability of life has been ever present and stressors are running high, I grasp on to any source of joy I can find."
