Celebrating Día de los Muertos Among the Flowers in Xochimilco
06/11/2019
Mexico City’s Xochimilco district has a beating heart and life-giving veins: Lake Xochimilco, and the 93 miles worth of canals that thread through it. This isn’t just a visual metaphor—upon the canals, rafts once travelled to supply vital produce to the city. Today, the district’s people still live and work on a lattice of chinampa, or floating islands. Now a UNESCO Heritage Site, Xochimilco—which translates roughly to “where the flowers grow”—is still an important location for growing flowers and vegetables; the fresh results are sold in nearby markets.

30/10/2019

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Tucked inside a museum on the Harvard University campus is a gallery teeming with plants so lifelike in appearance you’d be forgiven for swearing they’re real.

Dogs worshipped and garnished with flowers at festival in Nepal
29/10/2019
Sounds like our kind of festival!
It’s no secret that a dog is a man’s best friend and that was certainly the case in Nepal on Sunday. It marked the second of five days of the Hindu Tihar festival, or Diwali, which is held to worship and celebrate sacred four legged animals. Kukur Tihar, is a tribute of all things canine and sees dogs adorned with flowers and offered food after a lavish ceremony. Hindus see dogs as the messenger of Yamraj, the God of death, so the celebration is held to appease him. People across the country took part in the festival including US Ambassador Randy Berry and armed police dog handlers.

Arctic tundra transforms into flower-filled meadow due to climate change
22/10/2019
Meadows are bursting to life in a once-barren tundra in a graphic sign of the warming climate. Fields of brightly coloured flowers are springing up across the Russian Arctic just over one thousand miles from the North Pole. The array of poppies, dandelions and daisies along with lush green grasses in these Arctic Edens are more akin to a temperate climate such as Britain’s. Yet the oases of vegetation seen in these pictures is at latitude of 70 degrees north and the breathtaking array of blooming is growing in soil that, until recently, was hard-bitten permafrost. The remarkable images were taken on a Tomsk State University trip to the Yamal peninsula just 1,043 miles from the North Pole, say reports.
