The yellow squash is completely gone, this week we have a new butter squash with unique shape. It is the second generation growing off the seeds from grocery store fresh produce, a good way to recycle.
I never realized I have 2 pots of Snake Plant (Sansevieria Trifasciata) at home until Stephanie asked me a week ago. It is also known as Tiger's Tail,とらのお, espada-de-são-jorge, I don't know why most people call it Mother-in-law's Tongue :P It is one of my indoor collections, I bought it 2 years ago because it is care-free, only requires low light and water once a month or every two months. Yes, it tolerates neglect! If it gets too much sunlight, it will fade the foliage to a yellowish green. My mom said it can produce lots of oxygen, and most people put it in the house or office. I think it can help to clean indoor air, but I'm not sure about its healing properties. There is an article mentions using snake plant leaf extract as an antivenin agent. I call it energy-free "nature's air purifier" for our home.
Eating broccoli can reduce risks of heart disease, cancer. It protects against lung disease, build the immune system, and good for pregnant women because it contains folic acid. Vitamin C in broccoli can prevent polyarthritis. It is also good to help with rheumatoid arthritis. Its anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory factors are great for asthma patients. After reading all the good stuff................Here is the bad news, what is wrong with my broccoli? Pop quiz of the day:)

This is a closeup of the mini yellow flowers. They are glowing and welcoming the warm humid summer. What can you get from a dollar in the era of recession? Some happiness from Lowe's deal hunt, yellow color of sunshine, surprise, and long lasting blooms; that's a lot more than McDonald's dollar meal :-)
*Thanks to MsRobin tell us the name of this flower - Moonbeam Coreospis.
What Fassbinder is it? The one-armed man walks into a flower shop and says: What flower expresses days go by and they just keep going by endlessly pulling you into the future.

We really enjoy another visit to the natural science museum. This is Acro, Acrocanthosaurus atokensis skeleton. This skeleton is extremely rare. It is the most complete Acrocanthosaurus skeleton ever found and the only real Acro skeleton on display in the world. Acrocanthosaurus means "high-spined lizard" and atokensis describes where the first specimens were found in Atoka County, Oklahoma. Acro got its name from the extension on its vertebrae. Acro lived during the early Cretaceous Period, about 110 million years ago. The specimen was found in southeastern Oklahoma in 1983. It is called the "Terror of the South" because of its range; Acrocanthosaurus lived in the southern half of North America. Fossils have been found in Texas, Oklahoma, Utah, and Maryland. Bones may tell us what dinosaurs look like, but the tracks tell us how they behaved. Look at the tracks drawn from a real trackway found in Texas.
Blackberry plant needs pruning short after harvest, but a long sharp tool is required due to the dangerous thorns. These are what I cut from the plant; some gardeners said dead canes can spread disease, so I have to take those to the dump.
