Nymphs and dryads ... they tend to be shy around horny demi-gods.  And in the case of Artemis ... deadly as well.
I worked with a guy who named his dog Artemis.  I thought it was just a made up pet name, a combination of the short form of Arthur and some foo fah gibberish one would bestow on an object of affection, like snooky wukums.

I had visitors in my patio for a while, just enough time to raise a family.

there is only one true botanist out there who shall rise to the occasion!



Where can I get some seeds for that one?  My catalogs seem to lack it...

I'm not familiar with that bird.  It looks "goldfinchish".

And has green feathers.  Leave it to the Brits, LOL!  But OK.  It is a very pretty bird.  And it seems that it likes what we here in the US call "Bluebird Boxes".  I wonder if they are related.?  They look rather similar.

Actually its not called blue tit due to its breast color but due to the blue feathers on it, and the species being a Latin translation of the word Parus, or full name Parus caeruleus, and since their are other types of species in this group called tit in translation, its just easier to identify.

Also the word tit being associated with breasts is a recent thing thought up in the 1920s, while the word tit being associated with this type of birds been around since the 1500s

My humming birds have mysteriously disappeared.  Once they get started at my feeder, they keep coming back all day long feeding on it, guarding it, and chasing the more timid away.  They do this every day until they leave in the fall.  I haven't seen them in two weeks.  Does anyone have any ideas?

Yeah, "tit" in the breast sense is merely an evasion of "teat".  The English Victorians were really dedicated to "cleaning up" the language.  LOL!

I remember my maternal grandmother being very firm that children were not "kids" because "kids" were the offspring of animals, women had "bosoms" rather than breasts, humans had "limbs" rather than legs and arms, etc.

I thought he was the partner to James West, in Wild Wild West.

Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?
