Free Photo of the Day 7/21/14 & An Epigram

American White Water Lily
Canon T3i: 48mm; 1/320 sec; f/5.6; ISO 200

Hi friends!

Two updates today. The first is your free photo of the day, this one of an American white water lily (nymphaea ordorata). It was taken at the The University of Connecticut’s Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology plant growth facilities. I spent another day there with River last week and photographed a few of the gymnosperms currently in bloom. I also photographed two “sweet” plants that you might recognize. They’re posted below and the first person to correctly identify them gets, er, bragging rights!

The second update is an epigram I wrote called “Dairy Cow.” It’s a bit reminiscent of the late Ogden Nash. If you know a little bit about climate change and greenhouse gasses, the joke will be apparent. PLEASE NOTE: The poem is not offered for public use and is copyrighted for use in my upcoming book, “Where You Will Find Me.”

Enjoy, and as always please consider helping me with my goal of becoming a nurse. Thanks!

Dairy Cow

She gobbles the grass without knowing,

The gasses she makes are stealing the snowing.

 

Can you identify these plants? Good luck!
