Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Mead
If you think women are crazy you’ve never had a dude go from hitting on you to literally threatening to kill you in the time it takes you to say “no thanks.”

This Tree Is Growing 40 Different Kinds Of Fruit At Once
This single (and quite colorfully blossoming) tree grows 40 different varieties of peaches, plums, apricots, nectarines, cherries, and even almonds — but just how does it do it?
It does it through the process of chip grafting. After sculptor Sam Van Aken bought a failing orchard in upstate New York full of hundreds of different fruit trees, he began the pain-staking process of grafting several of the different varieties together into one tree. Six years later, the result is this 40-fruit bearing tree, which includes some heirloom varieties that are centuries old.

Step one: find fresh shed leaves, flowers, petals etc Or harvest fresh from the plant ( though do not take too much, be kind in your harvest)
Step two: allow them to dry a bit if they are damp or covered in dew
Step three: find a thick heavy book, open to the center…. place paper towels on either page and lay out your foliage on one side.
Step 4: close the book, make sure there is enough weight to firmly press your foliage down…. and allow to sit and dry for a few months
After a few months, they will be preserved with most color still in tact and ready for use.
Perfect for card making, decoupage, mixed media, resin, framing…..
a simple way to keep summer plants all year round <3

Ocean inside an Opal Gem.
Exceptional and very rare Oregon opals with precious color play. These particular crystals have a visual effect of being underwater when held to light. A combination of the facets and the colors create an unearthly effect. (via Inna Gem)
