Nope, this flower isn’t rotting, that’s how it grows! It’s the Trichosanthes, a flowering plant native to southeast Asia.
I came across a funny little article about odd flowers on Metafilter, and saw some really unique flowers like these:

These hanging lovelies are a type of Bolivian Fuschia.

These vintage Smokey the Bear nature posters are great! Wouldn’t you love to have one for your walls? Amy at Apartment Therapy was able to find one on Ebay after a little bit of searching, but for now, get bigger computer versions here.

My boyfriends mom has the whole collection of these! Her brother found them in their parents basement after they passed away and gave them to her.

Flickr user Straatis has a really interesting collection of photos of New York City in the 1940′s. There is something so amazing about a photograph from the past, and actually seeing what was like 70 years ago! Not to mention seeing the Big Apple 70 years ago! Check out the set if you’ve got a little bit of time!

I’m loving Leontine Greenberg‘s work right now! Her little birdie paintings are so whimsical and sweet! The bottom one in particular puts me in mind of Dr. Seuss! Check out her blog and Flickr for more watercolor goodness.

These portraits by Laura Adel Johnson are awesome! Why have I never thought to create pictures with tiny holiday lights? I’m kind of amazed at how much detail comes through, too. Check out Laura’s blog for pictures of a few more pieces.

Gardens

Skip Disneyworld. Go to Huntington Gardens in LA. I went there when I was in Los Angeles visiting our Free People stores last week. It is a beautiful cactus garden and greenhouse. Definitely worth visiting.

This video makes me want to take a vacation! Watch as the pretty clouds floating atop the Alps seem to flow like waterfalls in this little time-lapse clip! So pretty…

I love the simple and interesting compositions of these photos by Yamamoto Masao. I think that the simpleness and calmness of the photos makes them all the more striking. Check out more here.
Another great find from Dear Ada.
