You don’t need magic to disappear, all you need is a destination ♥ .
Emerald Bay is California’s first underwater park! It has recently opened up an underwater trail for snorkelers and divers to view recreational watercraft and barges underneath the water. The Eagle Falls hike and the 38 room Scandinavian mansion is also part of the park! 💕
Winter aconites seen this morning in Deptford Park. A little warm golden glow in the park on a dull grey chilly January day. They are very easy plants to look after, flowering reliably where little else will grow,
The most common of these small buttercup relatives is Eranthis hyemalis, which comes from the deciduous woodlands of the Balkans, Italy and southern France. In the wild these do exactly what bulbs are supposed to do - grow, flower and seed while light penetrates the bare branches of the trees above them. Then they die back, their active growth complete, just as the canopy starts to cast its shade.
This little plant is only about 10cm (4in) tall and looks great grown en masse, preferably somewhere that gets the morning sun. Enjoy! #winter#aconites#deptford#park#warm#golden#yellow#chilly#january#eranthis#buttercup#woodlands#balkans#italy#france#bulbs#grow#flower#trees#canopy#sun
I remember when I was a kid, all I wanted was to grow up and become an adult. I was desperate, desperate to have a job, to start earning, to dress like an adult, to live a corporate life, to be independent, to be free for kids are always under the authority of adults and hardly have any autonomy. During my mid terms, I couldn't wait to finish school, enter college and start a job. I would see people who already were doing those things and feel like time lapsing into their shoes. It's only after I grew up and actually grew up did I realize what a scam it was. Growing up is a trap, as they say and truly so. When life threw its curve balls at me and totally screwed up my timeline that school, college, job, marriage, kids and retirement might be the norm but it's noway a compulsion. There's always exception to the rule and I found myself to be that exception more or less. While and as I'm stuck in this mess of adulthood I can't help but wonder what the hell was I thinking wanting so desperately to be here. Why couldn't I see how I truly was in the best phase of life, at least relativity. That swing, those games, that homework, those extra curriculars may have seemed too much back then but they are a blessing compared to the real trajectories of life. Well, I guess that's enough pessimism for today. Adios.
