C'était une matinée "étournesque". Cet #Etourneau sansonnet ( Sturnus vulgaris) était en train de se laver en barbotant dans l'eau, pas très loin de nous

since I am spending Xmas eve alone, I decided to write something about spices! What do these #spices have in common? #botany #Iamabotanist #plantmas Image
the answer is that all of these plants have some of these in their tissue. But what are these? #plantanatomy Image
these are ethereal oil cells, specialized cells that accumulate volatile substances that give the spices their aroma! They can be present in the leaves, such as in bay laurel (Laurus nobilis) or indian bay (Cinnamomum tamala)... Image

Ive started an amateur herbarium! Pressed plants from my camping trip!

I know its a bit crude with the tape and I need to make nicer labels but I think its a good start! #botany
So happy so many ppl are excited about this!! I did this very affordably I think with only four items

$20--large thick hardback drawing book
$3--large elastics
$12--the portfolio binder w/ 25 polypropylene pages
$1/sheet--the acid free paper

So less than $50CAD vs $250+ ImageImage
The flat forceps help with removing the pressed plant which might be stuck.
