Sorry - for bogging up this thread. I'm just a real plant enthusiast  [;D] [;D]




A living wall - perhaps one day we'll all have indoor oxygen generating natural walls like that

The "wall" will support living plants that process waste water -- a "biofilter" -- and at the same time improve air quality in the building.

It's the remnant of hobbit homes made for the Lord of the Ring movies in near Matamata, New Zealand. After filming was over they kept them as they've turned into a tourist attraction. Check out Bag end - Tolkiengatway if you want to know more.

Rather nice concept of living - very organic  [;D]

Desert rose

For the life of me I can't find the latin name.  [:(]

Quite an interesting plant in that it can dry up completely, gets uprooted during the many sand storms and can travel (rolling along with the wind) for hundreds if not thousands of miles to take up roots once more again when conditions are right.
Some people have also speculated that this might have been the original 'crown of thorns'

This is a picture of a Gerber Daisy that I took when I was at work. Since I see plants every day, sometimes I can take them for granted...but Gerber's have always been able to make me smile.  [:)]

Yes they are pretty plants, but they are domestic garden flowers, not wildflowers.  Those mountains are the tetons in Wyoming.  We are working with the native flowers of that area, so I have some familiarity.

Stinging nettle

[attachment=3660]

The surface of a stinging nettle leaf. The large stinging hairs are hollow tubes with walls of silica making them into tiny glass needles. The bulb at the base of each hair contains the stinging liquid, which includes formic acid, histamine, acetylcholine and 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin). The tips of the glassy hairs are very easily broken when brushed, leaving a sharp point, which can pierce the skin to deliver the sting.

Here is an interesting shot. This is looking up the centre of a felled spruce. The core of the tree has become hollow through rot, but only the softer stem-wood has rotted away, leaving the more dense branch-wood behind.

Here is another root one - this is a larch and the roots have become exposed after the soil has gradually eroded away.
