Bracteantha

This is a neat little flower that is commonly called the “straw flower.” It looks and feels like paper, and even after it is long-dead, the bloom retains its shape and most of its color, much like dried straw.

I work for a wholesale floriculture grower in NC, and a while back I took my camera to the greenhouses and had some fun! I’ll be posting various pictures from the greenhouses over the next little while. I’ll try to be posting more frequently.

Camping Neighbor

I was fine with this little guy until he decided to make a home in my drink mug. That’s unacceptable.

Note: If anyone knows what this is, I’d love for you to share that knowledge! From the eye placement, I’ve narrowed it down to either Family Araneidae or Family Tetragnathidae, genus Tetragnatha.

Backpacking

My father and I hiked up a local mountain yesterday and spent the night for father’s day; a storm blew up about 4am, but it was all good! I had fun, and I’m glad to have spent the day with my dad.
