Starting in my own garden is a Neetle-Leaved Bellflower (Campanula trachelium). This is a native wildflower in England but maybe not to MK, I planted it because I liked it! Very hairy tube-shaped flowers makes this well adapted for bee pollination, and they seem to love it.

Happy 130th Birthday to us!

The TTFNC was founded on July 10th 1891 in order to: “...give pleasure to its members by observation of animal, insect and plant life in Trinidad”.

This thread will revisit some key milestones in our long history! 1/n #130yearsofTTFNC Image
In 1892, the first issue of our peer-reviewed journal was published as an outlet for our members to publish interesting and novel #NaturalHistory observations. It continues to this day as "Living World, the Journal of the TTFNC".… 2/n #130yearsofTTFNC Image
The first issue of our journal included J. E. Tanner's breakthrough discovery that #leafcutter #ants (locally known as #bachacs) cultivate fungus & feed it to their larvae, rather than eating the leaves directly as previously thought. 🐜🌿🍄3/n #130yearsofTTFNC ImageImage

A very interesting article on implications of the airborne nature of #COVID19. Ensuring ventilation in enclosed spaces may matter more than any other measure we are taking. 1/n…
This is why adding UV filters (incidentally very cheap) to central A/c systems and discouraging enclosed space congregation is important. May explain why Covid spiked in winter in cold countries and in summer here, and shows no seasonality on the equator (Brazil). 2/n
More research needed but this has important implications for what activities can be opened up quickly and what cannot. Also, how the high risk activities need to be redesigned. A/c of metro systems should be the single biggest focus in cities. 3/n

Butterfly was released during a huge transition in my life - I now refer to it as my first fully independent phase of life. I was living in my own apartment solo for the first time & recently had a falling out with my mother that forced a specific kind of independence emotionally
I listened to that CD constantly. It was almost the only thing I listened to that whole year. Every song felt like it was written for me - I was thottin & boppin so Honey was hitting hard on Fri nights.
- y’all my birthday is Fourth of July
- Butterfly was ME RIGHT THEN!
Anyway thank you @MariahCarey for the masterpiece that is #Butterfly it got this Black Girl through a critical year of her life and set through stage for the greatness that was just around the corner. ❤️

Do you know what inspired the Yogis to come up with many asanas? It was nature, the early yogis were influenced by what was around them. Read - Thread on Yoga!
#Dog - Downward Facing Dog aka Adho Mukha Svanasana. Its a popular pose which is also a part of the Surya Namaskar. This helps to increase flexibility and release tension. If you have dogs around, you would have noticed that dogs stretch their body in this pose.

#Cow Pose aka Bitilasana & #Cat Pose aka Marjariasana. Usually these two are done together. It helps in spine flexibility. The breathing exercise attached with this helps in relaxation. This is common posture in which the cow stands and cat stretches.

I started playing #guitar in college. Some of my friends back home played, so I thought I'd learn. It's been years since I kept up with it. With no job and an empty house, I had time. Plus, I could crank up my amp. Ava would have hated it. All the more reason to do it.
Strumming a few chords or playing a riff through a loud amp usually makes me feel better. It's more of a distraction this time. My amp is a little old. Even a #ragpicker might pass on it. "If you're not going to play it, sell it," Ava nagged. Life always got in the way.
Or I got in the way. Not even ten years ago I kept getting sick all the time. Painful stomach cramps would radiate weakness throughout my body. I learned how to wash it away like healing #rainwater. That's when I really started to figure out who I was and what I could do.

#Butterfly hit home last night, it made me think what would of happened if when we took our depressed 5year old to the child psychologist, we'd had advice, now seen as harmful, to "keep it in check". Instead we listened to our child, went at their pace, & she's thriving.
We got lucky, we did the research, followed emerging best practice, & didnt cave to the intensive stigma of a society where trans children are either feared or obsessed over. By telling the world about trans children, #Butterfly will make it easier for parents with trans kids.
Parents are still being told, by relatives, GPs, & even by some of the 'specialists' to keep their children's gender 'in check', to repress, hide, & punish gender diverse behaviours & expression. This is harmful to trans children. It teaches they are something shameful & wrong.
