Perhaps this coronal phenomenon represents hope, perhaps this represents joy... what does this speak to your heart?

   

This photo is natural color, as is, no edit what so ever. This was an approaching thunderstorm over Nashville and it created this stunning corona, and a shadow on some cirrus clouds above. It was even more beautiful in person.

 

"I lacha en naur e-chun

Sila, eria, bronia.

Ai! Aniron Edhelharn

 

The flame of the fire of the heart

Shines, rises, endures.

Ah! I desire Elfstone."

Ladies, do you remember a time when, as a child, you accidentally stumbled upon a treasured family armoire or an old chest tucked away in an attic or back room, and you opened it to find the most beautiful vintage gown? The color had ever-so-slightly faded, but even with age it maintained its enduring style and rare quality, and the pearls and sparkling embellishments along with the hand-sewn silk flowers brought this timeless gown back to life . . .

 

Now that memory comes alive once again with the release of CHAMPAGNE! Sparkling Couture's VINTAGE, a stunning haute couture gown, perfect for the Spring and Summer seasons, and one that will make your heart pound with excitement each time you reach for it!

La laguna del Malicioso, en el pequeño valle glaciar del mismo nombre, se encuentra dentro del paraje Natural del Lago de Truchillas, y a un nivel superior en una cota de 1858 m., de altitud lo que hace que permanezca buena parte del año cubierto de hielo. Es un paraje muy especial, solitario y hermoso, lleno de silencio y de una atmósfera muy cautivadora.

Monumento natural del Lago de Truchillas.

El Lago Truchillas (Llagu Trueitiellas en dialecto cabreirés) es un espacio natural protegido de la provincia de León, Castilla y León, España. Su origen es glaciar.

El lago Truchillas pertenece al municipio de Truchas en el sur de la provincia de León. Se encuentra situado en la parte baja del valle del Eria, presidido por el pico Vizcodillo.

The orchid is Eria clausa, which produces inflorescences with remarkable rapidity (coupled with the remarkably short lifetime of the flowers). It's beautiful while it lasts.

 

The background is the T-shirt that was produced for our recent flowering of Amorphophallus titanum. The link contains a video that nicely depicts the intensity of the experience for an array of participants and visitors (scroll down in the link for the video).

 

Shameless promotion! The T-shirts are available online, in many colors (even though the one pictured at the site is white). You can also get a tote bag or a coffee mug. Click here to dress like a Titan.

 

I should also note that the T-shirt depicts our plant "Perry" (real name Hyperion), flat-topped spadix and all. The flat top (which does contain a protuberance in the center of the Devil's-Tower-like structure), appears to be unique to Perry.

It is of the Amaryllis family, the bulbsbeing large and solid, sending up fine foliage and flower stalks10 to 15 inches high, producing in great profusion large, beau-tiful Lily-like flowers, snow white in color. In the Fall thebulbs can be lifted and stored like Gladiolus or Tuberoses,and will be ready for planting out again the following Spring.We have a large stock of strong bulbs, sure to bloom. 10 cts.each; 3 for 25 cts.; 8 for 50 cts. ANOMATHECACRUENTA. (Scarlet Freesia.) This lovely little gemis similar in bulb, foli-age and habit to theFreesia, but the flowersin brilliant contrast arebrightest scarlet; thelower petals deeplymarked; as it growsexactly like a Freesia,it can be planted withthem, and if you wantsomething really admi-rable, plant some bulbsof Anomatheca Om-enta. The true stockis limited. 6 cts. each ;5 for 25 cts.

Rare New Tigridias, (Peacock or Shell Flowers). Great advances have been made of late in the improvementof this singular and brilliant flower. Nothing more desirablecan be planted for Summer blooming. They produce a con-stant succession of most odd, striking and beautiful shell-likeblooms of immense size. Treat like a Gladiolus, taking upthe bulbs and storing them in a warm dry place during Win-ter. Fine as the older varieties are known to be, the exceed-ing beauty of the new Hybrids have proved a surprise to all.They should be largely planted this season.

History, Use, Propagation, Culture, 1910. Ornithocephalus. A very curious little plant, only an inch or two in height, found in Trinidad growing upon rotten sticks in the woods. It bears two or three green flowers, which contain a column, the upper extremity of which is lengthened out into a line subulate process, resembling a snipe's bill in miniature, whence the name, from ostitis, a bird, and xvpaXri, a head. No successful method of cultivating this plant has yet been discovered. 1911. Bletia. Dedicated to Luis Blet. a Spanish apothecary, who has always, as we are informed by the authors of the Flora Peruviana, distinguished himself in his botanical studies. Very noble plants, growing in the earth. Bletia Tankervillia is a common but beautiful species. The first plant which flowered in this country, was cultivated at Apperly Bridge, near Bradford, in Yorkshire, in May 1776, and had been sent there to Mr3. Hird, by her uncle, Dr. Kothergill, in a black Chinese pot full of stiff loam, in which it had been im- ported. Many small bulbs, with leaves like those of a snow drop, grew near the edge of the same pot in a re- gular circle, and these afterwards proved to be Amaryllis Aurea. The Bletia Tankervillia? delights in warmth, fresh loam, and plenty of water, by which treatment, and attention to fecundate the stigma, it will ripen fruit abundantly. 1912. Eria. From sjim, wool, on account of the woolliness of the flower of all the known species. Curious epiphytous plants, with bulbous roots, and flowers usually of a yellowish color. They differ from Dendrobium chiefly in the number of their pollen-masses, and in habit E. stellata is a fine free-growing plant, with long broad fleshy leaves, and spikes of beautiful brown-yellow flowers nearly a foot and half in length. 1913. Octomeria. So called by Mr. Brown, with reference to the eight parts, oxn, and ix&^os, into which the pollen is divided. A singular little plant, with filiform leaves and small nearly solitary flowers. The true limits between this genus and the last remain to be determined. The two seem to be separated by nature. 1914. Brasavola. Named after Antonio Musa Brasavola, an Italian botanist, born at Ferrara in 1500. Plants with long subulate fleshy leaves, and large white flowers. They are cultivated without difficulty in peat and sand, if good decomposed wood is not to be procured. 1915. Sarcanthus. A curious genus of plants not remarkable for their beauty. Their habit is various, but always caulescent; their flowers either yellow or yellowish, marked with various shades of purple. The name

O TETRÁGONO

(logradouro do plácido respirar dos amantes)

 

“... in the Earth lying beaten crazy

for this scandal flower beautiful

mine last marvel blossomed in my arms

in my fingers...”

 

Pendulava

A oscilar permanente por toda a eternidade

Em simetria aos’eus beijos doidivanas & sublunares

Sitiado sobre o corpo nu

D’uma celeste olímpica

Em pleno CENTENÁRIO

De Obdúlio

Jamais’eria Cisplatina

A paixão louca por ti ARGENTINA

Profundamente secreta, misteriosa & enigmática

BRASILHA

Em seu eixo monumental - o fantástico rabisco

Da NAVELOCA

Com cara transfigurada de ANJO

Por se-us olhares tortuosos de carência

Nas mãos enlameadas & ríspidas do CANDANGO

E-u sabia

Mas – escondia minha’mbição & desejo

Por um incesto sentido

“Incerto amor

Patriota

& Idiota”

: Segundo WILDE

Tudo apenas’ervia

Para uma ficção literária

De uma parva poesia

A descrever as oscilações ampliadas

No planalto dos CAIPORAS

Que garantiam a permanência da mentira

No drama PINDORÂMICO

D’aquela figurante de pequeninas pernas

This new dwarf variety, so highly praised by Mr. Louis de Vilmorin in the Revue Horticole, is really a much finer and dwarfer plant than our en- graving, made from an imported speci- men, suggests. Everyone knows the tall, lanky, straggling habit of the old Justicia Rosea. This new sort, which is now grown so extensively by Pari- sian florists, begins to bloom when the plant has only three or four leaves, and is never out of flower afterward. If pinched back occasionally it makes a very dwarf, stocky plant, frequently w- .: j=^=-^^ covered with 20 to 50 large pink flower- heads, lasting a long time.

1938 VINES VINES The following native specie.^ are all desirable; viz., L. sempervirens, with scarlet and orange fluwers, and L. flava, with hila))iate buff-yellow dowers. In many sec- tions of the South are found large patches of the exotic species,Z/. Japonica, vars. flexu-o.sa, C'Jiinenais and Hal- Hand; these are frequently troublesome, as they choke out surrounding plants. Its Var. aitreo-reficuhtta, with its attractive foliage, and L. Perieti/iiii'iiKin ,yixr. Beh/ica, which yields a continuous crop of pink and buff tiow- ers, are the most valuable of tlie exotic sorts. —Ipo- tnae-a. I. BonarieiLsis (>SeUowii) and Z/eari are the best of the tuberous section, the roots remaining sound dur- ing winter if slightly covered with litter. /. pandn- ratii, known south as Indian bread, is frequently found in large quantities in newly cleared rich oakwood lands, the tubers often weighing 10 to 15 pounds. It is very showy with its large white flowers and purple inner tube.—P'^s'-s/Z'/om. Both Arc-en-ciel, with flowers com- bining white, citron and blue, and Constance Elliott, with pure white flDwers, are perfectly hardy and pro- fuse bloomers. —7f^o.sv\s-. Of the climbing varieties there is a great profusion. Most varieties are either perfect evergreens or retain their foliage nearly all winter. The SVhite and Yellow Banksias are wonderfully attrac- tive in early spring when laden with innumerable small vinh't-scenteil liowrrs, while the climbing Tea, China, Noisette and Bourlion yit.4d a profusion of variously colored flowers from early spring until winter. The Wicnuraiana section will harni/((jr. Of. the many species growing south, the S. Iniirifolid is highly valued for its large, shiny leaves; it is of i^reat decorative value for ornamenting ball- rooms. Other kinds are desirable both for leaves and berries.—Trachelo s per mum jasminoides is an excel- lent white - flowering climber. The variegated form does not grow as tall, but ils foliage becomes beauti- fully tinted with gold and red iu fall. 111. Half-Hardy Cli^ibers. During the summer, southern homes are frequently adorned with a class of climbers that farther north are suitable only for green- house culture. Some of the best are mentioned below: The Anti'^onon, AHstoIochia and Tecoma here men- tioned will stand the winter if the soil is covered with a coat ot straw or leaves. The stem dies down in fall, but the new growth appears vigorously in spring. The others need greenhouse protection north of Savannah, Ga. Autlfionon leptopns. Flowers in long racemes of a beautiful pink color and produced from June until frost. —.lr/.s/'j/-"'7//((. efrf/diifi. This blooms profusely from July until frost. The flowers are tubular, but the limlj is perfectly flat and curiously marked and laced with purplish inarooxi, —Bi(JtioIlia. B. ve)iu.^ta is at home in the extreme South. It is a gorgeous climber. In early spring i>r even as early as Feljruary it is covered with large bunches of bright orange-colored flowers. B. spi'dofta will stand tlie winters of southern Georgia and produces its purplish colored flowers in early spring.- Bull'! 11 in riUi'it ffliilint, var. Sn tidi^ria-na. Those who have spi-n this plant in Florida when in full bloom must agree tliat it is not surpassed by any other climber. The Virilliancy of the climber is beyond description.

From tiie number of vines in cultivation good choice may be had both for cool or warm houses, and to suit every asiiect, as well as for flowering at all sea- s'ms. Annual, bulbous and tnberons-rooti-(l vines 'nav be grown in pots or small tubs, but iM-nnanent har<l- wooded flowering vines must li;L\e a.mj.de root room. However, in some cases, ;i.s ^vitb the strong-growiiit:^ bignonias and thunV)eri::ias, the ror.t space must be limited, or there will be an immense growth at the expense of flowers. When possible, the strongest growing vines may be planted under the greenhouse stages and the si ems and branches trained up from the back to the sides and roof. In must modern greenhouses, however, the space underneath the plant stages is taken up by the heating pipes. To overcouie this difficulty boxes made of one- inch cypress 5 feet long, 1% feet wide and 1 foot deep are very suitable. These should be well drained, ]iainted olive-green, and })laced in convenient positions ou the plant stages. In planting young vines the soil

Vines—Ipomcea Leari (X/3). should be broken and not sifted; neither should the boxes be filled with soil at the time of planting, but the vine should be planted in a central mound and the box gradually filled as the plant grows. This practice is stimulating to the vines and tends to maintain the de- sirable qualities of the soil. Most vines may be trained on wires, which should be either galvanized or copper and of sufficient strength to support heavy vines. The wires should be spaced not more than 1 foot apart, and fastened in a horizontal position. The space between the wires and glass should be not less than 18 inches or the vines may freeze in winter. Some judicious thinning of the growth is generally necessary in order that the vines may receive sufficient light and air. The vines should not be tied in too closely, but allowed their natural habit of growth as far as pos- sible in order to obtain the best effects. A few of the most desirable kinds for conservatory and cool greenhouse follow, detailed culture of which may be found uiuler their respective headings iu this work. Lapaf/eria (ilbn and rosea, producing bell-shaped wax flowers of exquisite beauty, are well adapted for the back wall or north side.
