We Are Family

Here are some wonderful cacti that have little baby cacti growing around and through the cactus.

Wikipedia indicates “Botanically, “spines” are distinguished from “thorns”: spines are modified leaves, and thorns are modified branches. Cacti produce spines…”

Cracked Open

Here is a wonderful parrot who has just cracked open a nut. According to the Internet, “Hailing from South America, the beautiful blue-and-gold Macaw presents a bold mix of bright blue and yellow feathers…Moreover, it’s green forehead offers beautiful contrast to its blue and yellow body.” They are intelligent.

Fountain and Ducks

Fountain And Ducks

I actually took this photo a decade ago. The lush green algae has covered the pond which affectionately is known as the skating pond in winter time at Assiniboine Park, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It is technically called the Riley Family Duck Pond and is situated close to the Pavilion and also the Qualico Family Centre.

Back and Forth

Back And Forth

These flowers are both looking forwards and backwards at the same time. I find it unusual that they are not all facing the same direction as they would towards the sunshine but they were indoors so I guess that is why they are growing towards different light sources.

I do not know what type of flowers they are but they are pretty. Perhaps, someone could enlighten me?

Upward Growth

Upward Growth

I love the way the ivy is crawling and creeping up this tree. I love the way it has tendrils that move up at its own pace. It is growing upwards and onwards to heaven above and the sun and the sky.

According to Wikipedia, “On level ground they remain creeping, not exceeding 5–20 cm height, but on suitable surfaces for climbing, including trees, natural rock outcrops or man-made structures such as quarry rock faces or built masonry and wooden structures, they can climb to at least 30 m above the ground.”

Sunflower Patch

Sunflower Patch

I found this full sunflower patch just north of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. What was strange was that it was later in the summer season and the field should have been harvested but had not been for some reason.

According to the internet, “Sunflower harvesting has a long history as an American tradition and they have been part of man’s diet for centuries. Native Americans were harvesting sunflower seeds long before Europeans arrived. They boiled the heads to extract the oil and ate the seeds either raw or baked in breads and infusions were used medicinally. The seeds are a good source of calcium, phosphorus and potassium.”

Secret Path

Secret Path

Secret Path

This secret path is near an old monk’s monastery in Northern France. The monastery has been converted to a home but there are secrets in the buildings and around the grounds. There is a sense of solitude and peacefulness as one travels along the back ways. I love the green colours in the imagery as well as the rich textured trees. I like the way the vines grow up these trees too.

By the Ridge

Looking through some green tree boughs, I see the beautiful Grand Canyon snaking itself along. The Earth formations are incredible. I like the contrast between the red rock and the greenery.

I hope you like it too. Check out my other creative imagery at this website.

This is a fun abstract art piece of the game of chance. It reminds me of dice and dominoes. It is made with India Ink and nib pens.
