Eye Candy: Fossil Flowers Bloomed When Dinosaurs Ruled Earth
12/11/2018
Sometimes a fossil gives you a glimpse of a world you never thought you’d get to see. They’re the best kind of treasures. Though only a few millimeters across, exquisite details of the petal-like sepals, the male and female parts, and even the pollen of Tropidogyne pentaptera are all preserved in 100-million year-old amber in a collection of seven specimens described by George Poinar, Jr. and Kenton Chambers in the journal Palaeodiversity last year. When these flowers bloomed, dinosaurs still had 35 million years to go as planetary overlords.

Mexico's Sea Of Orange Flowers Guides The Souls Of The Dead
06/11/2018
 
NEALTICAN: A sea of bright orange flowers sways in the wind, releasing the intense fragrance of the blossoms across the foothills of Mexico's Popocatepetl volcano.
Infused with pre-Hispanic mysticism, the petals of the cempasuchil flower, or the Mexican marigold, form the orange-carpeted path that guides souls on the Day of the Dead.
The distinctive flower is an essential part of the offerings Mexicans prepare for the climax of the traditional celebration held to honor the departed, which ends on Friday.
"An altar without cempasuchil flowers isn't an offering," says Yessica Ponte, a 28-year-old who, machete in hand, harvests the flower in Nealtican, in central Mexico.
According to Aztec legend, the cempasuchil was created from the body of a woman, Xochitl, pining for death so she could rejoin her deceased warrior lover, Huitzilin.

Age-old cosmetic recipes and remedies have documented the use of flowers, while grandma’s handy hints across countries and cultures include them as well.

Medicinal power of flowers can help to cure a host of ills

All gardens have healing power thanks to natural plant aromatherapy, writes Fiann Ó Nualláin
I AM a big fan of natural aromatherapy. Nipping into the garden for a quick energy boost, headache remedy or stress relief — as the occasion arises. I like essential oils, use them all the time as natural remedies, but they are perhaps more about how the body reacts as they are absorbed through the skin, with the active oil temporary tweaking the limbic region of the brain via the fragrance.
