Thread: This drawing was inspired by my 4y old niece & her favourite Halloween costume. She’s a bit of a character & very direct. I was capturing a child’s love of the wonder of things & how they treat the exceptional with complete acceptance. It’s about the magic of life!

Thread: Some of the most exotic & beautiful of Irish wild flowers are orchids. You can find them in ancient grasslands, bogs, woods & other semi-natural sites. Many are very rare. Here I’ve taken three examples & presented them in vibrant unique colours.

Thread: My favourite early Irish poem (7thC AD, translated by Seamus Heaney)

‘A wall of forest looms above
and sweetly the blackbird sings;
all the birds make melody
over me and my books and things’

One of the traditional ways the faithful have venerated the Virgin Mary,was with a family home or parish church Mary Garden.
Bluebells are Marian flowers.
Bluebells were originally called ‘Our Lady’s Thimbles’ to honor Mary’s motherly housework as she made the clothes Jesus wore. ImageImageImage

To mark the #InternationalWorkingWomensDay2022 on March 8, as in dozens of other cities, night marches are held in #Istanbul to #protest #violence against #women and the decline of #womensrights. Like every year in #Istanbul, #women gather for this at the #Taksim Square. Image
This year, however, no permission was granted for the action, wherefore the #Turkish #police started to take preventive "measures" since yesterday, and installed #police barricades at many points of the large square. Image
While footage in #Taksim revealed the #Turkish government's pure fear of the #women's marches, a contradictory picture was revealed behind the blockades on the #Istiklal Street where #police was handing out #flowers to the #women. Image

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". ttfnc.org/livingworld/in… 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

Dublin's heart and charm is cluttered, cluttered with atmosphere not fecking 'quarters' with their chrome and their Costas. Dublin is a good second-hand shop, a Freebird records, Dandelion market, Kehoes, Mulligans, Marks Bros, where folk gather, share and hunt for diamonds....
It's Bewley's and the Savoy and tara street station and the piano at Pearse and Chapters bookshop and get the last of your wrapping paper and the walk to Croker and the canal end heaving and Patrick Kavanagh chilling on the canal..
It's the glow of the Aviva and the dart rattling in and the excitement of Grafton Street and the velvet of the Gaiety, the sticky floors and sounds of the Olympia and Thomas street with artists and those that might be drinking pints as the toilet rolls are sold on the street

About climbing my 1st 14er, campaigning for @PeteButtigieg at 14,000ft, finding community with strangers, an electrifying moment, and the biggest surprise of my life!
We arrived at the #MtEvans trailhead around 7:30am, the peak was lost in fast moving clouds. #14er
Mt Evans magnets & shirts don't lie, the GOATS! So awesome.
We had goats greet us at the trailhead, we kept our distance &
ogled them with delight. #14ers
#OhWhataBeautifulMorning
#TeamPete, I brought my @playmobil #minime & a #Pete2020 banner for some inspiring photos exploring #AmericatheBeautiful.
#SummitLake parking lot, with another 2,00-odd ft to ascend to the peak of #MtEvans, a #14er that I can see from my house, SE of Denver!

Tohira Kerrike (also spelt Kherekar) has been selling flowers at Silwood Centre in #Rondebosch for the past 45 years. She talks about her childhood in "Untold Stories: Memories of growing up in a different era," a book by @CTchildhood. (1/14)
Her family owned a small farm in #Constantia at the top of Ladies Mile Road. On the farm, they grew vegetables and #flowers. Her mother sold the flowers that were grown on the farm. Tohira started helping her mother with the selling of flowers. (2/14)
#CapeTown has a long history of flower selling. @meboehi writes in “The flower sellers of Cape Town – a history”, that the cut flower trade began as an activity of #slaves in early colonial Cape Town and that flower selling began in the mid-1880s. (3/14)

I Received the below message from a #Friend and found it #TooGoodNotToShare ..

What is A.A.A.D.D.?

It is Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.

#ThankGod they now have a name for it ..

Read on more to learn about #AgeActivatedAttentionDeficitDisorder ..
This is how it manifests:

I decide to #water my #garden
As I turn on the hose in the driveway,
I look over at my #car and decide it needs washing

As I start toward the garage,
I notice mail on the porch table that
I brought up from the mail box earlier
I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car

I lay my car keys on the #table, put the junk mail in the #garbage can under the table and notice that the can is full

So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the garbage first

Pues me voy a animar como dije el otro día a hacer un proyecto 365, pero en vez de haciendo fotos, editando fotos mías antiguas, random, basadas en el mood de cada día.
La única limitación que me voy a poner, va a ser el formato 1:1... A ver lo que sale xD
#365photochallenge
I´ll say it also in English :)
I´m gonna try a photography 365 project, but instead of taking photos, processing old random photos of mine...
Only one rule: the square format.
Let´s see what I got, which will be directly affected by the mood of the day...
