These examples of typewriter art are fantastic! Did you learn to type on a manual or an electric typewriter, or have you never used one at all?
Alberta-based macro photographer Adrian Thysse recently posted some stellar images of fungi found in our province. Take a close look (see what I did there?) here.
Many of you may already be following the excellent blog Garden in a City – Jason’s post about not cutting down perennial plants at the end of autumn is both timely (for those of us in the northern hemisphere) and valuable!
And here’s another great post about end-of-season garden clean-up. What are your thoughts? Do you wait until spring to do these sorts of tasks?
Thousands of lantern slides from the 1800’s and early 1900’s have been digitized and posted online at various sites – you can check out the databases via this link. Incredible examples of an early form of photography.
Check out these amazing photographs of bird’s nests and egg specimens, collected over the past two hundred years and exhibited at several zoological institutions.
Stuff I’ve posted elsewhere:
A book review for Alberta author Eileen Schuh’s latest novel, The Shadow Riders.
Plus…a couple of my articles have been recently published: “Four Centuries of Gardening” in the 2017 Old Farmer’s Almanac, and “Fall Cleaning Hacks with Herbs” in the Fall issue of The Herb Quarterly (both on newsstands now). And…upcoming…my short story “The Beauty of Mount Sagitta” (featuring pterodactyls! And rare plants!) will be a part of the super-toothy anthology Sharkasaurus! from Fossil Lake. Yes, all those exclamation points are absolutely necessary….
