wet and dirty

(viewed 1321 times)
finally rained so I can come inside.

top is joe pye weed, a swamp plant that loves a wide shallow swamp and grows six feet tall.
2. redbud and maple blossoms on the ground with foam flower leaves.
3. raindrops on canadian ginger
4. Carolina silverbells in the rain. it's a tree. I lie down under it and look up. works for me.

carnivorous pitcher plant, oh joy.

(viewed 3421 times)
spent the last two days working because there are two very important plant sales here and I work at both.

bonus is I get to choose plants for myself. this is a pitcher plant, a swamp, bog, fen plant, native to here. I remember it from childhood, and have always liked it.

now I have to build it a home. a bog. a fen. a swamp.

and feed it bike thieves.

sitting in a parking lot waiting for people and behold, a tiny helicopter. why not?
it seems to have exhaust problems.

The force that through the green fuse drives the flower

sunshine and crawling around the woods with my camera make me feel good.

stolen bike, one pissed off swamprose

(viewed 924 times)
My trusty bike of many years was stolen out of my backyard two weeks ago. Tonight my new bike was stolen while I took a photo, leaned it against something. It was seconds. I never saw it.

Toronto sucks. I didn't even finish insuring it.

going to be doing a lot of walking. it's not all about flowers.
