When you and your Aloe Hercules have been eating the same donuts and both have got equally as fat. 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️1 of my 7 Aloe Hercules on beast mode with that Hybrid Vigor. My Frucraya Mcdouglii has grown crazy as well. The Dracaena Draco not so much and that is why it is getting replaced with a beast sized one. I don’t want to wait 40 years.

Blanca (14,344') and Mt.Lindsey (14,042'). The gateway between northern New Mexico and southern Colorado. Seeing these two giants devoid of snow, is just another reminder of how dry this winter has really been. Still breathtaking nonetheless. . . . . . . #colorado #backcountry #mountains #14ers #14ersofcolorado #southerncolorado #northernnewmexico #drought #water #snow #praytoullr

The Lost Weekend #1945 Billy Wilder Back to black (and white). To call this award-winning #kino a love story is in questionable taste. It more resembles #absurdist horror: « the confessions of a booze addict. » The best films noirs effuse #eloquence and aspiring writer (Ray Millard) is an absolute #poet : chatty et charmant in his #grandiose delusion. In #drought most #deplorable and detestable but Best Actor 1946 Millard teases even #sympathy in this most #Kafka nightmare. Millard’s @performance is damn #intense : ne plus ultra most deserving but this film noir #nonpareil also won Best Picture, Best Director and Best Writing*. It is one of only two Best Picture winners to also win Grand Prix, at #Cannes ’ very first Film Festival enfin. *(Adapted Screenplay.) It’s like Home Alone, for adults. Thank you for reading and thanks @mubi.

In a two-year reportage, @adrienne_surprenant travelled to the self-declared state of Somaliland to uncover the long-term consequences of severe drought. “The country hosts a lot of people in a precarious situation. With the local population also getting precarious, one wonders how it will recover” she says.

Tree of the day! Seagrape (coccoloba uvifera) Fun Facts: sea grape trees are usually found along the coasts; such as Argentina, Central America, Florida, and the West Indies. These trees can be planted as Hedges or Street trees and are sometimes used for windbreaks. The sea grape is drought, heat, and salt tolerant and thrives in extreme Coastal conditions Sea grapes are available now!

#Somalia #Drought Father Abdi Haji Mohamed gives water to his four year old son Shirwa Abdi Haji who is being treated for severe malnutrition outside the Stabilisation Unit that is supported by @unicef in #Garowe #Somalia on 20th February, 2018. An ongoing #drought has had a devastating effect on the lives of pastoralists throughout the country in the last year. Abdi Haji Mohamed has lost 500 of his 600 goats. He has 15 children to feed, one died last year. #Malnutrition is an underlying cause (or factor in) of a third of deaths of children under 5.#onassignment #reportagespotlight #photography #portrait #photojournalism #everydayafricaeverydayafrica #canon5dmarkii #storiesthatnakeadifference @aretestories
February Fire Season :/ •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• 📷 1: @seth.blackamore •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• 📷 2: @jpsierraphoto •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Pushed by winds and fueled by the drought-dry brush, the Pleasant Fire broke out ½ mile downstream of the Pleasant Valley Dam scorching 2,250 acres of Lower Owens River habitat and recreation areas. The origin of the fire is under investigation, so we’ll wait and see what (common sense?)lessons we have to learn from this event. While only 35% contained, the fire is essentially under control but not out. Most folks who were evacuated from their homes are now allowed back, and the Inyo County Animal Shelter is handling lost animals displaced by the fire. They can be reached at (760) 938-2715. The Pleasant Valley Campground and surrounding areas will remain closed until further notice. Thanks to all those agencies and staff that responded so quickly to protect the City of Bishop and surrounding communities! Please respect the closure signs and stay safe out there! #pleasantfire #inyocounty #fireseason #drought #staysafeoutthere

After being in extreme drought for the last few months, the coming days of rain seem like a well-deserved reprieve. The springs are refilling, creeks are flowing quickly, and the trees and plants are greedily replenishing themselves. #rain #drought #creek #chickasawnps #findyourpark
dear fellow californians . . . if these photos at over 11,000 feet in mid-february don't light a fire under your ass to start conserving water now, you are part of the problem 🔥💧☹
With drought creeping back in, some much needed rain is rolling through today. Here, Burnet County ranchers are waiting patiently for the showers on the horizon to make it to their ranches. Protecting these open spaces ensures that the water that falls there can make it into our aquifers, streams, rivers, and eventually our facets. #rain #texas #ranchers #ranch #ranching #BurnetCounty #clouds #drought #farm #farming #farmers #showers #horizon #liveoak #trees #pasture #water #aquifer #recharge #streams #rivers #drinkingwater
InFINITE 💧 My home city, Cape Town, is currently going through a water crisis and they’re close on hitting ‘Day Zero’. With drastic actions in play it really makes you think about the resources we consume believing they are infinite. Although water on this earth is recycled and we are probably drinking water that dinosaurs bathed in 🦖 it is not always readily available and we need to be aware of how we use it. Just because the UK gets a lot of rain now does not mean we aren’t vulnerable to droughts. We should always be water wise 💦
Girl in the desert. A Turkana girl is taking a minute to rest before leading her goats back home. Her family is lucky to still have goats as the drought killed most of the community's animals. She will do the same tomorrow and the day after. Hours of walking to the dry river where she leads her goats to drink from a hole in the sand . She fills her flasks and washes her clothes in the muddy water hoping that tomorrow the rain will come.. #girl #survival #waterscarcity #desert #drought #climatechange #tribe #reportagespotlight #lensculture #friendsinbw #friendseditroom #socialdocumentary #creativeimagemagazine #hikaricreative #doubledge #photoobserve #photomagazine #leica #streetphotographyhub #socialdocumentarynet
Terminology Tuesday - ERICOID Botanical definition: Small linear leaves in which the edges are rolled inwards on the undersurface Certain species of fynbos have adapted 'ericoid' leaves as a way to survive hot, dry conditions. The edges of these needle-like leaves roll inwards, creating narrow grooves on the underside of the leaf. The stomata, or breathing pores, are restricted to these grooves and are relatively well protected from water loss. More often than not, the underside of the leaves are also covered in fine hairs which provide additional insulation. This leaf form is characteristic of most members of the Ericaceae and is a great distinguishing feature to keep an eye out for when you are exploring in the veld. But what if you spot this key character and the plant is not an erica?! Don’t be alarmed, as some other fynbos families have taken a leaf 😉 out of ericas’ book, as shown here by the rare, Endangered Cliffortia ericifolia (image ©️James Puttick), which has evolved ericoid leaves to withstand the harsh summers of its lowland sand fynbos habitat. #terminologytuesday #leaf #ericoid #cliffortiaericifolia #ericaleafcaperose #rosaceae #endangered #capeflora #redlistofsouthafricanplants #ericaceae #fynbosadaptations #drought #FynbosLIFE #technicaltalk #botany #thinkwaterct #lovecapetown

A drought in Australia is more than parched earth and dwindling rivers - it exacts a heavy human toll on farmers. Lions are bringing relief through the Lions Drought Relief Project - donating more than AU$800,000 to #AussieHelpers to support Hay Days in country towns affected by drought. "Sometimes we feel forgotten, so it's good to see that people do still care and will do what they can to try and help," says farmer Jodie Knuth. "At the end of the day, it's not going to save us - only rain can do that. But it's something."
Save water, Switch to Millets...! . . . Millets are drought tolerant, coarse grain cereal crop which are a rich repository of protein, fibre, vitamins & minerals. They were a staple food to most of India until the dawn of high yielding and water consuming varieties of wheat and rice in 1970s. Millets are now not only neglected in our food basket but also tagged as a 'poor man's food'. In the advent of water crisis and prevailing distress in marginal farmers, mainstreaming millets back in our diets is a win-win for all... . . . #save #farmer #pearls of #drought #sorghum #millet #revolution #save #water #glutenfree #healthyfood
SoCal has slipped back into severe drought conditions again. A meteorologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration politely pointed out how "You don’t recover from five years of record drought with one wet season....” With hot and dry conditions enabling the largest wildfire in state history to rip through the area, and an increased fire risk persisting through what's supposed to be the wettest part of the year. To date, the Los Angeles basin has received less than 20% of the water that's normally expected by this time of year. The total amount of snowpack is only 27% of normal, which is concerning considering the state gets most of its water between December and February. Drought conditions have been worsening recently. Just in the last week of January, only 13% of the state had moderate drought conditions. The first week of February was only 44%. Here at wildcats garden we are doing our part with a drip irrigation system, native plant garden, succulent garden and an butterfly urban habitat. We can all together make a difference. We have to.

This pastel drawing is the first one that I’ve ever made with pastels and it’s still my favorite one... 🙂 What do you think? 🤔💭 I made this illustration for children’s book “ZMOREM!” - “I CAN!”.🍂🍄🍁 The biggest obstacle when trying to #educate a child is trying to break down a topic into understandable material. Even if a child is unable to read, they can still understand what is going on in the picture. 💙👀 #illustration #illustrator #pig #children #story #workinprogress #doriseinfalt_art #mywork #wind #leaf #pastel
