Slender Leaf Marigold

Tagetes tenuifolia, the signet marigold, golden marigold or lemon marigold, is a species of the wild marigold in the family Asteraceae. It is widespread across most of Mexico, Central America, Colombia, and Peru.

Tagetes tenuifolia is an annual herb, sometimes reaching as much as 50 cm (20 in) tall. Leaves are less than 3 cm (1+1⁄4 in) long and deeply divided into many small parts. The plant produces many small bright yellow flower heads in a flat-topped array, each head with five ray florets and 7–9 disc florets.
Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.

Wood Anemone
Anemone nemorosa
Sun-loving, gentle, a mark of the old. Wood anemone is one of the first spring blooms, arriving to take in the light through the leafless canopy in broadleaf woodland. Look for them in old and ancient woodland that suits their slow growth.
Real beauty is to be true to oneself. That’s what makes me feel good.
Laetitia Casta

Hemp Agrimony
 Eupatorium cannabinum
Also known as ‘Raspberries and Cream’, Hemp-agrimony displays ‘frothy’ clusters of tiny, pink flowers on top of long, reddish stems. Its leaves look like those of Hemp, although it is not related.
We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.
Jawaharlal Nehru

Common Gorse
Ulex europaeus
Windy, open moors covered in bright yellow, spiky common gorse bushes and purple heathers are synonymous with what we call ‘wild’ landscapes, but it can be seen in many habitats, from coast to town.
Beauty is whatever gives joy.
Edna St. Vincent Millay

Who would have thunk it?

The world’s smallest true primate weighs in at only 30.6 grams and is only 9.2 cm in length and is known as Madame Berthe’s Mouse Lemur and is in fact the smallest of all the mouse lemurs.

A blue whale’s heart can be heard beating 3.2 kilometres away from where it is swimming.

Cows spend up to ten hours a day grazing.

The iceberg that the Titanic struck and which then sunk the unsinkable liner was only displaying 30 metres of its true self above the waterline which according to the experts was only a fraction of its overall size. Survivors claimed that they saw the berg at 100 feet high and around 400 feet in length and possibly weighed 1.5 million tonnes. It is suggested that the iceberg calved from a glacier on Greenland’s West coast around 1910 maybe 1911 and as they only last two to three years after calving, it would have melted into non-existence by 1913. It was originally thought to have been 1700 feet long and weighed 75 million tonnes.

A pigeons pectoral muscles account for up to 40% of it’s total weight!

i know, right!
Who would have thunk it?

Wishing you a great day folks in all that you do!
