Yesterday's meeting of my orchid society was especially good and not just because one of my plants won a ribbon (see previous post) and we discussed the upcoming show. I got a #Dracunculus vulgaris and a #Pinguicula esseriana from one of my main plant swapping buddies; I got a starter colony of #Blaptica #dubia #roaches from another member; I picked up a #Crassula ovata, #Pachyphytum oviferum, and some sort of small #Haworthia from other members; and I sold an old glazed ceramic orchid pot.
Spring is on the way which means my #corms will be waking up soon! I'm gonna need to get these guys planted up before long.
I'll also be picking up #Dracunculus vulgaris from one of my plant swapping buddies today!
#Beekeeping doesn't have to be prohibitively expensive! In honor of the patron saint of beekeepers, here's a plan for a top-bar #beehive you can build out of a #reclaimed 55gal barrel and some pallet wood, plus a guide for trapping your own #bees from nature! Happy Valentine's Day 🐝
The Girl Scouts of Western Washington were offered $100,000 on the condition that the donation "will not be used to support transgender girls".
They sent the money back, held a fundraising campaign, and raised $300,000. #ForEVERYGirl

As St. Valentine is the patron saint of bees, here are some fluffy lil bees for your feed. (I know bees scare some people so thus the cw.)
On a mostly unrelated note, my C. darlingi is easily spooked and loves to bolt. It's pretty small still so we don't know its sex but, if it is female, we're leaning towards naming it Mrs. Dash and, if male, maybe Michael Boltin'. She's darted out of her enclosure during feedings and had to be captured two times now, once requiring me to carefully move furniture to find her. #Tarantula #Tarantulas #TarantulaKeeping #TarantulaKeeper #ILikeTarantulasMoreThanPeople
A new, really interesting horned baboon tarantula, Ceratogyrus attonitifer, was discovered* in Angola. I have one of its cousins, Ceratogyrus darlingi. 🕷
*by the experts, that is; the locals have known about it for some time
