Wildflowers as Mirrors

The New York Times has just published a quite wonderful, and mournful, meditation on the lost flora of New York City by the Executive Director of N.Y.C. Wildflower Week.

I highly recommend taking a look, whether or not you live in NYC, as a motivating meditation on the importance of finding ways, large and small, to help replenish and restore this battered world.


Thinking of Japan

Don't give up, Japan. Don't give up, Tohoku.

I am asking my friends to consider making a donation
to the Japan Earthquake Relief Fund.
I am confident this support will go to the right places in a timely way.

This doesn't even remotely qualify as beekeeping-related, but I just had to share it. I found it on a great website called Braining Pickings that a friend turned me on to recently.
