no new leaf screen shot can beat this. It’s fact.


shout out to minimum wage workers have to work on labor day so folks with cushy desk jobs can have the day off.

There exists a sub-section of men who literally cannot sit through a discussion of structural misogyny without receiving constant and emphatic reassurance that no one is accusing them personally of being a misogynist. This is a derail and an attempt to shut down debate. Because, to quote “Sometimes, it’s just a cigar”:

“Suppose you disagree with women about whether rape is part of the structure of our society, used to reinforce patriarchy. Do you make that debate possible by standing on your wounded pride, and just insisting that the debate must start with a disclaimer that says you’re not a rapist? Forgive me, but that’s nothing more than narcissism.”

The conviction that you have never participated or been complicit in structural misogyny is dubious to say the least, no matter what your gender. But even if you are resolute that you, personally, have managed to transcend the system you were born and raised in and now stand as a shining beacon of gender equity outside the mire of patriarchy? Good for you, but structural misogyny still exists and we still need to have a conversation about it. If you think you have nothing to learn, go play elsewhere on the internet.

Ansellia africana ‘Shadow Boxer’  (Africa)

Commonly known as the ‘leopard orchid’, Ansellia africana is  a large and variably colored plant from warm coastal regions in Africa. Our ‘Shadowboxer’ clone is very dark compared to the more commonly seen flowers (more typically you see defined “spots” instead of a convergence of spotting which forms a solid color toward the tips of each tepal). There is even a form devoid of spots completely and has a pleasant soft green shade to the flowers. In fact, the only thing that competes with its variability in color would be its variability in medicinal uses by natives communities. Everything from teas to love potions can be made from the pseudo-bulbs, leaves, flowers or even roots.

And now, The Huntington’s tumblr is proud to present…

TIMELAPSE GIFS OF THE BLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Photos every 20 min.
Left: Yesterday (8/23), 9:10 a.m. through 4:50 p.m.
Center: Yesterday, 5:10 p.m. through 12:50 a.m. today (8/24).
Right: Today, 1:10 a.m. through 8:50 a.m.

The Corpse Flower, though in the process of closing, is still GORGEOUS and people are flocking in to see it. SO COOL.


What’s the point of even having Labour Day as a stat holiday when food service workers like me are forced to work anyway? 

It’s not really a celebration of “labourers” anymore; it’s a celebration of unionized workers. 


When you can’t obtain a proper one, Froster cups make surprisingly decent orchid pots.
