I sure hope I got this right I was very intrigued by how the one tree was wrapping itself around the other at first it seemed to look like a snake as it was high up and I wasnt paying much attention to it, but looking up what I saw was so fascinating to me I had to get a photo of it, now I do not know if you can see it but look at the very top of the wrapped tree it looks as if a man is holding on and there seems to be arms wrapped around him also, ok maybe it just my imagination but natures ... by estelle

Loui Jover is one of my favorite artists. I find it hard not to like how he is able to create sadness with his darker paintings, and the downward dropping of the paint, as if its melting off the surface.... Genius. It creates a moment, not just a physical movement but an emotional one. Saatchi Online Artist: Loui Jover; Pen and Ink, Drawing "rain" by Hercio Dias

an article on motherhood and sons.  "It is said that as a wife, I am my husband's mirror.  I reflect back to him his successes or failures.  Through my responses and behaviors towards him, I am showing him the image of who he is, and how he is doing, as a man. ... However, just the other day I realized I was neglecting the other male presence in my home regarding this concept.  I am also my son's mirror." by Rhonda Bibbs

"A Promise" | Loch Lomond, Scotland • "An early morning drive around Loch Lomond revealed a glimpse of the incredible beauty of the region. Coupled with a blood red sunrise and low lying mist, I wished that if there were only more time, I would be able to capture some more of its genteel landscapes. Instead, armed with a map, it was all guess work and a targeted approach in trying to find a location to best make the most of the sunrise. I’m happy to say that on this occasion it was a fruitful mission and we managed to enjoy two wonderful locations during our final landscape shoot of the trip. How often do we seem to experience great light and locations as soon as home beckons? Even the drive down from Ullapool was an exercise in frustration. All the mountains along the route were now covered in snow, the fire grasses thick with frost, the lakes giving off mirror like reflections, and the light glorious. Unfortunately, it was not possible to stop along the way and these beauties had to be experienced without a camera in hand. At the end of the day, I believe this is as it should be. Scotland showing itself at its best, teasing me, making me promise that I should return one day to deepen those scratches that I have made on its surface." by Kah Kit Yoong via 500px.com by jewell

Normally a scene like this evokes saddness and a sense of lonliness, but the bright colors and how the color swatches are composed makes the scene happier. It's like the man is happily bouncing his leg waiting for his person to come along. Or maybe he enjoyed the rain when it was falling. sitting on a bench after the rain by elinor

MBTI Personality Type Frequency in Women Note the tiny little sliver for INTJ, and the not much bigger fraction for INFJ. Why I like this: it helps explain (or I like to think it explains) my peripherality. Yes, that is now officially a word. Because I, INTJ, said so.

Robert Frost The Road Not Taken TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. by imogene

I have seen this quote before... I honestly used to be appalled at the thought of it because it is so true about who I am and I was probably afraid to even admit that by liking it. But last week I saw teenagers writing it on their camp shirt and I was like, "ok. what kind of example am i? maybe it's time to embrace this shit now." (I, Sarah O'Connor, wrote this paragraph, it is not lazy re-pin.) by kristina

Climate-Friendly Sunken Pool Converts into Radiant Floor    Here’s a truly glamorous idea for a pool. A sinking pool! The apparently permanent stone floor in this room literally slowly drops to reveal the pool underneath.        In the raised position, you can walk on the same surface radiantly warmed from beneath. And of course, having the swimming pool convert itself  into a floor makes it child-friendly too: this is not a pool that a child can fall into.    Once it is sunken it looks like any other indoor pool – as permanent as you could possibly want.    You could design this so that it remains as just a shallow decorative pool when not in use, one that is only an inch or two deep.    But the best thing about this idea is that it would also make keeping the pool warm a cinch. The exposed surface of pools give off heat at a great rate and take a lot of energy to reheat. But this one is only exposed to heat evaporation when you swim in it. This could make this extremely glamorous design also a very climate-friendly one as well. That’s because the energy expended to keep pools toasty make your swimming pool the worst carbon hog: worse even than you driving that SUV.  Radiant floors or the use of thermal mass is climate-friendly design because of the  slow release of warmth – reducing energy needs for heating.    The super-rich with luxury housing do the most harm to the planet with their luxury high energy use architecture. So, encouraging their architects to incorporate eco design ideas like thermal mass/radiant floors into luxury architecture is a way to reduce their normally VERY heavy carbon footprint.    But of course the energy consumption would depend on how much  energy is expended to raise and lower the floor. Perhaps that can be engineered to be a clever energy efficient design… or perhaps not. It is designed in Belgium – if you want to ask and see, or make a suggestion on how that could be achieved. by StarWatchCat

Our new pop-up greenhouse, with shade cloth on! Its not quite as easy as they make it look on the box, but it is pretty easy - just like putting a tent together.     I like to have fresh greens all winter and this is how I do it. I have two Juwel Cold Frames. I sprayed black paint on two 1-gallon bottles for each. Fill the bottles with water and put them at the back wall of the Cold Frame. by Katharina Mallet-Gulley
