These fiery azaleas in my front yard are not messing around. No filter, they are just that bright. I want to plant more of these!

Friendly reminder that if you need boxes you can go out to stores that just throw them out and ask. Often chain fastfood or local businesses are good places to ask.

No need to pay 5 big ones for some chunks of cardboard.

"Plants for a Future" is an amazing site/project that maintains a detailed database on #permaculture / #foodforest plants suitable for Temperate regions. And, they need money to keep going! I just signed up for €1 monthly. If you can spare it, they're doing good work! :)

The Making Permaculture Stronger movement is about applying Permaculture to Permaculture itself:

> For we each of us deserve everything, every luxury that was ever piled in the tombs of the dead kings, and we each of us deserve nothing, not a mouthful of bread in hunger. Have we not eaten while another starved? Will you punish us for that? Will you reward us for the virtue of starving while others ate? No man earns punishment, no man earns reward. Free your mind of the idea of deserving, the idea of earning, and you will begin to be able to think.

Mexican architect Javier Senosiain specialises in sustainable "organic architecture" and it's pretty cool. #solarpunk

I found an orchid with a BAT pattern inside it!

Scifi bottles, anyone?

Here's a different technique because I like to try new ways of making art - an almost entirely flat-color piece. Some cheatery happened on the protective bubble and in the sky. I did begin the whole thing on paper of course - I'm still really partial to the way that feels.

I imagine this martian colonist as a kind of ground vine dispersed in these bubbles that open when conditions are favorable.

"For the way is not strown with petal soft,
It is covered with hearts that weep,
And the wounds I tread touch a deeper source
Than you think it mine to keep...

Ay, gather your petals and take them back
To the dead heart under the dew;
And crown it again with the red love bloom,
For the dead are always true.

But go not "back to the sediment"
In the slime of the moaning sea,
For a better world belongs to you,
And a better friend to me." ~ Voltairine de Cleyre

(2/2) "...And we meet, also, living souls dominating dying bodies — living ideas regnant over decay and death. Do not imagine that I speak of human life alone. The stamp of persistent or of shifting Will is visible in the grass-blade rooted in its clod of earth, as in the gossamer web of being that floats and swims far over our heads in the free world of air.
Regnant ideas, everywhere! Did you ever see a dead vine bloom? I have seen it." ~ Voltairine de Cleyre

"In everything that lives, if one looks searchingly, is limned the shadow line of an idea — an idea, dead or living, sometimes stronger when dead, with rigid, unswerving lines that mark the living embodiment with the stern immobile cast of the non-living. Daily we move among these unyielding shadows, less pierceable, more enduring than granite, with the blackness of ages in them, dominating living, changing bodies, with dead, unchanging souls..."
