Behold the Halberd-Leaved Rose Mallow! Mallows (like hibiscus and okra) are great because they grow in swamps and make disgusting slime and we turn that ooze into marshmallows and gumbo. Bumblebees and several moth species feed off this mallow, including a moth named, incredibly, Delightful Bird-Dropping Moth. The saucer-sized showy flowers bloom for a single day, and I guess...the leaves...look like a halberd? A kind of sword? Sure!

Been here a few days, here's my intro 

! I'm Karen, I live on a small farm in Champaign, Illinois. I'm married to Kyle, who is the only good man. My cats are Shankly and Evelyn; I also have several chickens. I scan books for the Internet Archive and have only ever worked in libraries, a neat trick for a college dropout. I like baseball (Cubs/Twins), socialism (Chambana DSA), disability rights, figure skating, and prairies. I am older than I look, please guess.

Okay friends, I am moving to please follow me there, boost pls, I will do a wildflower post tonight

Okay I think I might move to knzk for real, it seems like a nice-sized pond and all my loveliest mutuals are moving there

My husband, looking over my shoulder: oh, are you farting?

Husband: This is the platform you chose!

I need more normie people to follow cos you’re all too cool for me. Where’s fiat 500 tooter at.

Twitter just sent me a notification that was "(person) follows you - join (person I follow) and 5 others in following them" which is getting REAL desperate, guys

Making more and more accounts on more and more instances as a way to avoid just leaving social media altogether, very healthy and normal of me
