Panda, Kalanchoe, Aloe Vera and money plant revisited.

Those who live in the Shelter of the Most High will stay in the shadow of the Almighty. (You have to stay quite close to remain in the shadow of the one protecting you.)

Psalm 91 : 1

The plants that grew from the remains of different vase posts. A little time to grow roots in water or straight into some dirt. These have all grown well.

Panda and Kalanchoe leaves have crenate margins – rounded, scalloped teeth.

Aloe Vera its teeth are serrated like a saw.

Then money plant leaf (horn plant) is described as, entire, with the leaf smooth around the entire leaf (no teeth)

Some tooth jokes:

What does ‘Tooth Paste” mean in Italian?

Pasta al dente!

What did the dentist tell the tooth as he left the room?

I’ll fill you in when I get back.

What happens after you go to the dentist a few times?

You know the drill.

How do you know the tooth fairy is a journalist?

They’re always searching for the tooth.

Then down the road and today the ice has gone the mist has lifted and the blue sky is back.

The old weeds tall the young weeds green a contrast in shade and winter sun.

The road side green from resiliant, stinging nettles, sticky weed, milk thistle and nipplewort.
These amongst others growing fast.
Sticky plant with tiny velcro leaves, milk thistle and nipplewort.
3 different roadside grown leaves in a little bottle.
With the shadows of Aloe Vera,
Kalanchoe and money plant.

Find beauty not only in the thing itself but in the pattern of the shadows, the light and dark which that thing provides.

Junichiro Tanizaki (1886-1965 He was a Japanese author considered to be one of the most prominent figures in modern Japanese literature.)

  1. Love the tooth jokes. πŸ˜πŸ˜‚That Italian one is the best, never heard it before. Laughter is good medicine. Great plants with such rich medicinal value, especially the aloe vera. β€οΈπŸ’—πŸ’–
