"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."

Thank You! Xeramtheum for sharing this video. I am constantly amazed by how different plants are from each other. Whether they are spiny, eating insects, scented, popping out seeds or just lovely to admire their beauty of uniqueness, all plants are awesome. Smiling

(I keep my homemade net baggies on hand to gather the seeds from my euphorbias and jatrophas.) Smiling

That was really cool!
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

You're welcome Reine .. I use those organza bags you can get at the dollar tree stores. They are really a must for plants with exploding seed pods.

They really work well for hybridizing too .. I use them to sequester flowers that I'm going to hand pollinate and they come in a larger size as well.
