Morning Glory clouds are roll clouds that can be over 600 miles long. This rare phenomenon isn’t entirely understood, but is likely to occur during times of high humidity and strong winds. The southern part of the Gulf of Carpentaria in Northern Australia is the only known location where they can be predicted and observed on a mostly regular basis because of the configuration of land and sea there.

35 little G3 ponies, drawn G4 style! I wanted to try drawing small ponies as a test for maybe making some adoptables. Thank you to everyone who suggested a pony for me to draw.

These are not OCs, they are official ponies! However some of these are based on redesigns by @needsmoarg4, and Thistle Whistle is based on @starsketcher‘s design.

Happy Birthday Katharine Houghton Hepburn (May 12, 1907 -  June 29, 2003)

Miss Hepburn, Aunt Kat, Katie, Kate. She is all of those plus importantly Katharine with an “A”. Loyal, demanding, pure and purely demanding, open, reserved, formally informal, proud. Intimidating. Exasperating. Funny. Touching. She is a doer, a worker, a riser above everything. Passionate in her likes and dislikes. Says what she thinks but keeps herself to herself. Loving. Sentimental. A lover of beauty, nature. There for all who need her, really need her, and are in need. She is wonderfully, uniquely one of a kind. She is here. For all she is, has been, has given, will be, she has enhanced and enhances this life. I love her. - Lauren Bacall

Her energy was phenomenal. I’d get to the studio at seven and she’d been there since six, riding the grounds on her bicycle. She has a wonderful wild and lunatic passion for everything she does. It is a tremendously infectious sort of thing and she creates a state of excitement. - Anthony Harvey  

As an actress she’s a joy to work with she’s in there every minute. There isn’t anything passive about her she ‘gives’ and as a person she’s real. - Cary Grant
