Before there were seeds….there were spores
These are pics of the Earth layers, the deep soil, connection of all things, from above to below, and back again, including a yarn about Patriarchal Poison and the results in our Earth 🌎 ⬇️

This is where Kate’s canvas is. She has a growth on her leg that has been diagnosed as not friendly. This is what she said about her painting: Mornin ~ started back in. Seems the emerging creature has been consuming all the mycelium & beneficial microorganisms . The fight is on & they will recalibrate, making quick work of that beastie. and later: felt so good once I got to the canvas & felt empowered after.

The bottom pic of the seeds is from the original painting. ✨️
Are your spaces to bury your seeds ready? Have you done some sketching and research on what you want to plant in your garden canvas?

A cheerful shot of where my painting stands for vacation. I lightened up the rainstorm and brought in some blue sky and a rainbow.
Plant or Seed ?
Which came first, the plant or the seed?
Forget the chicken and the egg conundrum, this botanical argument has a resolution covering millions of years.
Asked by: Adam King, Huddersfield
The earliest fossils of complex land plants date from around 470 million years ago. They resembled liverworts – a kind of simple moss – and reproduced by releasing spores, which were carried away when it rained.
Spores contain a single cell, whereas a seed contains a multicellular, fertilized embryo that is protected from drying out by a tough coat. These extra features took another 150 million years to evolve, whereupon the first seed-bearing plants emerged. So plants came first, by a long way.
