West end of my front yard. Hollywood plum is blooming. Lots of spring bulbs popping up.

Amer, beautiful cacti!

Wonderful Joan. Thanks for the post. The guay got a wonderful protective mechanisim.

Oligodynamic effect of some metals also makes sense. But talking of metals, highly reactive metal of group 1 and 2(alkali and alkali earth metals) like Na and K etc are usualy found alredy in compound forms. Atleast surfaces of less reactive metals like Fe etc are in compound forms. Silver, gold etc are notorious for being highly un-reactive, which weakens their status to effect enzimes action. None the less a wonderful idea for a little bit of mental activity. Thanks for the post again.

Some Insect Wings Are Natural Antibiotics

I first met a Cicada when I lived in Washington, D.C. and was startled at first. Upon doing a little reading I discovered they are a very compelling insect; a joy to watch.
We don't have them in Washington state.

Amer, these stunningly beautiful cactus reaffirms the value of diversity.

My cactus are well into the spring here. Many of them flowering or preparing to flower. This time it was a hrd winter. For me too to protect them against heavy rains. But all is happy now. Here are my Ferocactus stainesii var. pilosus

and three varities of Golden Barrel(ECHINOCACTUS grusonii ).

Still too wet and cold to "dig in the dirt". My kale didn't winter over like last year. Whole garden starting from scratch, except for asparagus. Gotta get peas in--last year's leftover seeds.

Gotta find some valerian seeds now!

Comment by Plinius on March 15, 2013 at 2:37am

You're never sure what they like, but I had some cats who loved to be high on valerian. One also ate tomatoes...
