a bit more natural
the hawthorn tree in the front yard ( okay the"tags" are not quite right ) is coming into full bloom..you can tell by the scent which is strong to the point of cloying...the birds will be happy over the winter...and the bees are all over it right now...honey bees...nothing related to mason bees ( although i bet they are around )...but pollinators none the less and so they are welcome...they are busy...barely stopping...moving along...napoleon had a bee on his family crest...he was busy too..like a lot fo things busy is a pharmakon...it can be a remedy or a poison...in the bees' case it is benign...there are five bear paw maize plants up...about half the number of teosinte plants out there...we'll see if the ancestor's presence makes the maize "stronger"..before the squirrels eat it anyway...in the meantime i have a morphological comparison to post about...the corn is up in the industrial fields and there's maize out back...we'll get to see if they look related...all three of them.
an industrial worker and university student (everyone needs a hobby...my hobbies have evolved and, to keep things straight, i have left my formal student career behind for reasons that are too detailed to delve into here...continuing to be a student of life however and not adverse to learning...stasis is death ) sliding down the back side of middle age...a social loner with collectivist leanings...explain that.
