07.05.2017//  Do you have any suggestion for a book (or even athors in general) that it’s well written and interesting but that doesn’t have “big words” every two lines? (it would get tiring and I already know I would not finish it *english isn’t my first language*)

So imagine: Jack and Bitty on a date at a museum. They go to the Harvard Natural History Museum one day after visiting Shitty and his law school bros. Jack spends hours walking through the exhibits, geeking out about all the history and nature. He rambles on and on to Bitty about the historical time periods and archaeology behind the artifacts.

Bitty: Jack I don’t think I’ve ever seen you talk this much

Jack: Haha yeah normally you’re the one who can’t stop talking

Bitty: One more chirp from you and I’m leaving you here with the dinosaurs

He also takes a million artsy photos of the Glass Flowers. Bitty has heart eyes the entire time and loves the fact that his boyfriend is a huge nerd.

I went to Boston this weekend to visit my best friend @yogalady and while I was there I took the opportunity to have my MIND BLOWN by the Blaschka Glass Flowers at the Harvard Museum of Natural History.
ALL OF THESE FLOWERS ARE 100% GLASS!!!
Produced on a foot bellow powered Bunsen burner in the 1870’s by just two incredible flame-workers!
They are so intricate, realistic and perfect I thought my little glass worker heart was going to explode! As a nature inspired flame-worker it felt practically a like a religious pilgrimage. I still can’t even believe my eyes just looking at the pictures I took! It was a fantastic highlight to an all around perfect trip!
Prepare to be spammed by more pictures of awesome things in Boston!

the glass botanical specimens are at Harvard are famous of course, with the flowers being the best known. Over a period of 50 years the Blaschka family of Dresden perfected the glassblowing techniques that allowed their creation and Harvard was their main customer with 2 generations of The Ware family, Elizabeth and her daughter Mary Lee, picking up the bill. Four thousand of the specimens exist. The diseased apple show here is an Emperor Alexander, with the apple scab Venturia inaequalis. created in 1932, near the end of their efforts.
