Swamp meet find from yesterday!
Artemisia absinthium, this herb is great for so many things! Loss of appetite, digestive issue, sexual desires, mood, help relieve chron’s! But more wildly known for making absinthe
'My special angel' begonia so pretty but such a pain in the butt! Struggled with lighting, watering and everything in between. Now doing amazing in leca! Thank you Kay for the handful of balls @inrootedlove 💚

Yes! Love the silver sheen on its leaves. It’s already a big lady. Definitely going to try propagating some of its leaves.
Treating myself to a morning of self love poetry, tea and spending time with my plants 🥰☕️ btw this pothos came from a cutting I took in dec and has already put out two leaves this month in the dark corner I put her in🌿 (we love a thriving queen! 💕)

A postagem de hoje vai pra esse trabalho desafiador. Não só pela dimensão, mas pelos tipos de traços com linhas retas e semicírculos. Uma composição que exigiu mais paciência e trocas de poses do que o convencional. Confesso que por alguns instantes imaginei que não conseguiria conclui-lo, uma vez que necessitaria mais tempo de experiência e autoconfiança do que apresento como tatuador. Não obstante, deixo a cabo de vocês a avaliação. Ficou aceitável? A resposta da cliente, que também é artista, e do marido foram muito positivas e cheias de gratidão, que é tudo que esperamos no fim de um trabalho como este. Grande abraço ao amigo Philipe pelo prestígio e confiança em deixar eu trabalhar um pouco do que acredito ser verdadeiro na pele da esposa. Felicidades sempre casal. Abração.
A caneta esferográfica destina-se, basicamente, ao desenho linear. Para obtenção de tons, portanto, recorre-se ao traçado de uma série de linhas paralelas, que ao ser combinada com outra série de linhas, também paralelas mas orientadas em outra direção, resulta num tom sólido. É o que se denomina técnica de hachuras cruzadas.
A hachuras cruzadas são desenvolvidas tendo como base a variação do espaçamento das linhas, de sua espessura e do número de camadas. Com um pouco de prática, você será capaz de reproduzir qualquer tom, escuro ou claro. Para isso convém levar em conta, primeiro, que uma série de hachuras, ao ser cruzada com outra, produz um tom duas vezes mais escuro que o de uma única série.
Segundo, se as linhas forem grossas e traçadas bem perto umas das outras, produzirão um tom mais escuro do que se forem finas e mais espaçadas.
Você pode também variar o comprimento e a direção de seus traços, para indicar o formato do objeto que está desenhando (por exemplo, utilizando traços curvos ao desenhar objetos arredondados).
Procure fazer os traços das hachuras cruzadas bem espontânea, para que seu desenho não pareça excessivamente mecânico.
Day 22. Species: Epilobium billardieranum, Smooth Willowherb⠀
Animals are often the primary dispersers of the seeds of flowering plants but many plants have evolved adaptations to have their seeds dispersed by other mechanisms. The seeds of members of the genus Epilobium, a relative of the Fuchsia, have little tufts of hairs attached to them. These seeds are held within a long capsule that splits open, at which point the wind catches and spreads the seeds. High seed production and rapid and widespread seed dispersal allows E. billardieranum to colonise newly disturbed areas and establish before other plants have a chance to establish.
Hello everyone! This is a species of Closterium, a unicellular green alga. They have some jewelry in their possession! 😳They are particularly beautiful, I put a low magnification image of it at the beginning of the video so you can imagine how it looks at 100x magnification and the video is recorded at 800x magnification. I just get a close up to one of the tips of the cell to show you something amazing... 💎
Closterium species are photosynthetic organisms and they are in a group which contains the closest unicellular relatives of land plants. However, I want to write about little moving things at the tip of the cell, those are crystals. Like literally! 😳 Mostly barium and calcium sulfate crystals and I am not sure about the function of these in the cell, as far as I know it is not clear.
These crystals randomly move because of something mind blowing and very fundamental. It's called "Brownian Motion". Basically these crystals are EXTREMELY small they can be pushed by water molecules! Water molecules are constantly bombarding the crystals and making them move randomly! And we are here to watch it, isn't it just freaking amazing?
I will always remember the first time I witnessed this, it was incredible. That you can see the physics rules in action! 😱
PS. If I ever get to propose someone I will do it with these crystals💍 Seems pretty legit to me! 😂😛

Wrestlers (front) handspring 🤼
@bjj_sydney had been prodding me a few times to practice the wrestlers handspring with him but I was hesitant as I hadn't done it for over 12y, probably more like 13-15y. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yesterday I gave in. 🎥 First video is me not getting it, then Dave's solid move, and last one is when I did it with ease. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I was surprised to find how well I could understand and get the movement. I remember there was lots of fear involved when I was a kid trying this. At wrestling practice everything went so quick and you were just meant to 'get it' straight away, no instructions really. But with great instructions and support from Dave I picked it up quickly. It felt like something the body had been longing for, in fact. Thanks for showing me the way @bjj_sydney Next time on the BJJ mats 🙏
Makes me want to see whether I could learn other ways of tumbling... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2 years ago I had a handful of plants at most. It’s largely due to the houseplant community online that I was able to grow my own urban jungle at home — by trading and propagating, and by learning and sharing information. I couldn’t imagine my home without them now, that’s for sure.
Il y a 2 ans j’avais à peine 5 plantes à la maison. C’est grâce à la communauté des hobbyist de plantes que j’ai pu créer ma propre petite jungle urbaine chez moi depuis ce temps — par l’échange de plantes et des boutures ainsi et le partage d’information et de ressources. Je ne pourrais imaginer mon domicile sans plantes aujourd’hui
This Funky Friday features Rafflesia arnoldii, called Rafflesia or corpseflower for its characteristic ... aroma. This is the largest single flower in the world! “But I thought that was the titan arum?” you might ask. As I mentioned in the last Funky Friday, THAT corpseflower is technically not a single flower — its an inflorescence, which is a group of smaller flowers. And while the titan arum is certainly titanic, each flower isn’t very large on its own. In contrast, a single Rafflesia flower can be more than a meter across and weigh 10 kilograms (22 pounds)! This plant is more interesting than meets the eye, however. In fact, the majority of the plant is never visible. It’s a parasitic plant that takes the form of networks inside the roots of other plants that it steals nutrients from. The only part that ever emerges are the flowers (and their seeds). As such, it’s rare to see in its native Indonesia, and it has actually never been grown elsewhere.
Another interesting fact is that this plant was the inspiration for the Pokemon Vileplume!
Rafflesia is in the Rafflesia family, Rafflesiaceae.
