This little plant is known as a chain of hearts or rosary plant (Ceropegia). โ™ฅ๏ธ My mom had one when I was growing up that I just loved. When it flowered, it was especially beautiful. She had so many house plants. I’m sure my my love of plants and animals comes from watching her care for these magnificent creatures. ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿฑ She is kind of a unicorn ๐Ÿฆ„ with house plants especially. There were some that were around for most of my youth, they were like close friends. But I was generally wired to make friends with plants and animals. We would go camping quite a bit. After getting into camp, I would go exploring, making new friends. Some human, mostly plants and creatures. They would show me cool hiding places or help me to climb hillsides.
At my house in Fair Oaks by the American River I would spend hours outside every day during the summer making friends. And when my brother Adam was old enough I’d take him to secret places along the creek out to the river, exploring these magical places where fairies and gnomes hid.
Many hot days I would sit in the shade with my back against a tree, reading a book near my my neighbor’s beehives. Watching the bees, spotting fairies dart through the oak woodlands, delighting at a salmon returning up the river to give her life for the next generation. These were moments when I came to understand that my role was to speak for the protection of these magical places, these magnificent creatures, this precious ecology of relationships.
I’m grateful to my mom for helping me see the world differently, for giving me space to explore, and climb and be free to wonder as wonder. * * *

This guy! โค๏ธ
I’m so grateful to be on this journey with him. Even if we don’t have 220 electric for a dryer and our clothes are never fully dry in wet season. * * *

Metallic green bee! ๐Ÿ
This bee was a bit upset after I removed a large lemon grass plant taking over the herb garden. I think there may have been an in-ground nest. I discovered some interesting larvae when I was planting new herbs. May have been bee larvae. But I did not see other usual signs like food stores for baby bees. Hard to know. Beautiful bee though! ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Calabaza en una ventana. ***
I took this photo at the most wonderful casita out a near impassable muddy road north east of Matagalpa. The home had an improved kitchen (cocina mejorada) that the owners were very happy to show us. The building was made of mud and wattle. And the wood window had such character. There is such a warmth that comes from natural spaces like this. * * *
