  • One of the best things: a hike in the forest with this guy… 💚 (I’m always running behind by the way, that’s ‘cause I need to make a picture of every fern & pine tree I see and they tend to show up quite often in forests… #forestproblems) 💁🏻‍♀️🌿💚

  • In this episode of Friday Fun Fern Facts: In the Middle Ages people didn’t understand how a plant could reproduce without flowers. Since ferns don’t grow any, people believed they flowered in secret once a year, on the night before Midsummer Day, and produce invisble seeds. Many tried to capture these invisible seeds – they would grant invisibility, let you see into the future and be forever young. With all that in mind the whole spore-reproduction sounds a bit dull now, right?

  • Is this what I think it is? The first sign of Autumn? In case you’ve missed it: it’s been terribly hot here in the Netherlands, we’re in a second heatwave and the parks in the city look like the desert. The trees are getting rid of all their leaves to save water and energy, and you can find these leaves everywhere - it’s like it October already!

  • House goals! I’m stoked to travel to California later this year and get to witness all kinds of cacti in the wild: they’re such amazing plants!
