Herb of the Week-Pine

Among all the trees belonging to the coniferous genera, the genus Pinus is perhaps the hugest and most significant. Precisely speaking, this genus encompasses as many as 95 species and several ranges and crossbreeds. Trees belonging to the genus Pinus are extensively dispersed, especially in the Northern Hemisphere where they are found growing naturally from the sea level to the Arctic or Antarctic limit of tree growth (timberline). Pines may be found almost everywhere from Scandinavia to North Africa, from Alaska to Nicaragua and Siberia to Sumatra. While a number of pine species like the Scotch pine are extensively dispersed ranging from Scotland in Great Britain to Siberia, there are several species that are found growing in very restricted locations. For instance, the species called Canary Island pine is only found growing in the wild in the Canary Islands, while only a small number of trees belonging to the Torrey pine family are only found growing in two localities in California.

Koko-Sweet’s Adventures at AX: Day 3

Day 3 was a total blast for yours truly. I went to two gatherings(in which I would post the photos separately), and I went as Korra from Book 4 of LOK. Everybody asked me for a photo and I met some old friends through out my journey. I found again Bill.

I even found a Loki cosplayer who was a total sweetie, but I don’t know his name. If anybody here knows the Loki cosplayer in the 6th and 7th pictures, holla at me. DustBunny was very sweet, and everytime I see her on all 4 day, I always call her Bunnyface. And the Manolo and Maria cosplayers in the last photo were really nice, and I helped them find the Book of Life gathering and it’s time schedule. Once again, if you’re the cosplayers in the photos, reply to me. Now, onto the gathering photos.

Got my new Grimoire Verum tights in the mail today! I’m so happy that both tights I’ve been pining after were in stock and on sale. Always great service. Angel approves of my new cat themed tights as well. I now own 4 pairs of cat tights, soon to be 5 when I receive my Juliette et Justine cadre du chat tights. I also want the Lockshop Marie Catoinette ones. What can I say, I’m a crazy old cat lady.
