Mary Gorniak playing the flute - Silent Night  -  Heims um ból -  Jólatónlist
 
04:25
A live version with a very special atmosphere. Here is a video of flutist Mary Gorniak playing the flute at a residents party in Pendean House 17. dec 2012. The program consists of Christmas Carols. Mary Gorniak professional flute player - See more information: http://www.carehome.co.uk/supplier.cfm/searchazref/65432195143 Franz Xaver Gruber, Stille Nacht! Heilige Nacht - Silent Night - The Song Heard 'Round The World - Heims um ból, helg eru jól. Christmas Carols - Jólatónlist - Jólalög. The song was first performed on Christmas Eve 1818 at the St Nicholas parish church in Oberndorf bei Salzburg. The small town on the Salzach river, part of the former Archbishopric of Salzburg, had just passed from the Kingdom of Bavaria to the Austrian Empire in 1816. The young priest Father Joseph Mohr had come to Oberndorf the year before, he had already written the lyrics of the song "Stille Nacht" in 1816 at Mariapfarr, the hometown of his father in the Salzburg Lungau region, where he had worked as a coadjutor. The melody was composed by Franz Xaver Gruber, schoolmaster and organist in the nearby village of Arnsdorf. Before Christmas Eve, Mohr brought the words to Gruber and asked him to compose a melody and guitar accompaniment for the church service. Both performed the carol during the mass on the night of December 24. In his written account regarding the composition of the carols, Gruber gives no mention of the specific inspiration for creating the song. According to the song's history provided by Austria's Silent Night Society, one supposition is that the church organ was no longer working so that Mohr and Gruber therefore created a song for accompaniment by guitar. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silent_Night 180 years ago the carol "Stille Nacht! Heilige Nacht" was heard for the first time in a village church in Oberndorf, Austria. The congregation at that Midnight Mass in St. Nicholas Church listened as the voices of the assistant pastor, Fr. Joseph Mohr, and the choir director, Franz Xaver Gruber, rang through the church to the accompaniment of Fr. Mohr's guitar. On each of the six verses, the choir repeated the last two lines in four-part harmony. On that Christmas Eve, a song was born that would wing its way into the hearts of people throughout the world. Now translated into hundreds of languages, it is sung by untold millions every December from small chapels in the Andes to great cathedrals in Antwerp and Rome. http://www.silentnight.web.za/history/index.htm The Silent Night Museum. In Hallein, a town known for its salt mines near Salzburg, the Silent Night Museum is in Gruber's home where he lived after finishing his post near Oberndorf. Every Christmas Eve, "Silent Night" is sung accompanied by Gruber's original guitar. http://inmozartsfootsteps.com/franz-gruber-silent-night/ On Christmas Eve, 1818, Gruber composed the melody for "Silent Night! Holy Night!" and then together with Joseph Mohr performed it for the first time in Oberndorf's St. Nicholas church. While this moment was a highlight of his time in Arnsdorf, Gruber himself characterized the melody as merely "a simple composition." http://www.stillenacht.at/en/gruber.asp Silent night, holy night, All is calm, all is bright Round yon virgin mother and Child. Holy Infant, so tender and mild, Sleep in heavenly peace, Sleep in heavenly peace. Silent night, holy night, Shepherds quake at the sight; Glories stream from heaven afar, Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia! Christ the Savior is born, Christ the Savior is born! Silent night, holy night, Son of God, love's pure light; Radiant beams from Thy holy face With the dawn of redeeming grace, Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth, Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth. Silent night, holy night Wondrous star, lend thy light; With the angels let us sing, Alleluia to our King; Christ the Savior is born, Christ the Savior is born! The carol has been translated into 140 some-odd languages. The song has been recorded by virtually every artist, past and present, who has made a Christmas album. There are versions by Enya (sung in Gaelic), Andrea Bocelli (sung in Italian), Stevie Nicks, Bing Crosby, Mahalia Jackson, an acoustic version by American R 'n' B group Boyz II Men, and an instrumental version by Mannheim Steamroller. Simon & Garfunkel recorded an ironic version of the song in which a depressing radio news report is overheard in the background. The version recorded by Bing Crosby is one of the fewer than thirty all-time singles to have sold more then 10 million copies worldwide.

Rien n'y fait, menace ou prière, s'il lui convient de refuser! l'un parle bien, l'autre se tait; et c'est l'autre que je préfère, il n'a rien dit, mais il me plaît. L'amour! Lamour! Lamour! Lamour! L'amour est enfant de Bohême, il n'a jamais, jamais connu de loi, si tu ne m'aimes pas, je t'aime, si je t'aime, prends garde à toi! Si tu ne m'aimes pas, si tu ne m'aimes pas, je t'aime! Mais si je t'aime, si je t'aime, prends garde à toi! Si tu ne m'aimes pas, si tu ne m'aimes pas, je t'aime! Mais si je t'aime, si je t'aime, prends garde à toi! L'oiseau que tu croyais surprendre battit de l'aile et s'envola; l'amour est loin, tu peux l'attendre, tu ne l'attends plus, il est là. Tout autour de toi, vite, vite, il vient, s'en va, puis il revient; tu ne l'attends plus, il est là tu ne l'attends plus, il te tient! l'amour! Lamour! Lamour! Lamour! L'amour est enfant de Bohême, il n'a jamais, jamais connu de loi, si tu ne m'aimes pas, je t'aime, si je t'aime, prends garde à toi! Si tu ne m'aimes pas, si tu ne m'aimes pas, je t'aime! Mais si je t'aime, si je t'aime, prends garde à toi! Si tu ne m'aimes pas, si tu ne m'aimes pas, je t'aime! Mais si je t'aime, si je t'aime, prends garde à toi! English Translation of Habanera Love is a rebellious bird that nobody can tame, and you call him quite in vain if it suits him not to come. Nothing helps, neither threat nor prayer. One man talks well, the other's mum; it's the other one that I prefer. He's silent but I like his looks. Love! Love! Love! Love! Love is a gypsy's child, it has never, ever, known a law; love me not, then I love you; if I love you, you'd best beware! etc. The bird you thought you had caught beat its wings and flew away ... love stays away, you wait and wait; when least expected, there it is! All around you, swift, so swift, it comes, it goes, and then returns ... you think you hold it fast, it flees you think you're free, it holds you fast. Love! Love! Love! Love! Love is a gypsy's child, it has never, ever, known a law; love me not, then I love you; if I love you, you'd best beware!

Mary Gorniak playing the flute - The Skye boat song
 
03:09
Over the Sea to Skye - Irish song. Here is a video of flutist Mary Gorniak performing at a residents party in Pendean House 9. sept 2014. - Mary Gorniak, professional flute player - more information: http://www.carehome.co.uk/supplier.cfm/searchazref/65432195143 "The Skye Boat Song" is a Scottish folk song, which can be played as a waltz, recalling the escape of Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie) from Uist to the Isle of Skye after his defeat at the Battle of Culloden in 1746. The song tells how Bonnie Prince Charlie, disguised as a serving maid, escaped in a small boat after the defeat of his Jacobite rising of 1745, with the aid of Flora MacDonald. The song is a traditional expression of Jacobitism and its story has also entered Scotland as a national legend.The lyrics were written by Sir Harold Boulton, 2nd Baronet, to an air collected in the 1870s by Anne Campbelle MacLeod (1855–1921), who became Lady Wilson by marriage to Sir James Wilson KSCI (1853–1926) in 1888. The song was first published in Songs of the North by Boulton and MacLeod, London, 1884, a book that went into at least fourteen editions. In later editions MacLeod's name was dropped and the ascription "Old Highland rowing measure arranged by Malcolm Lawson" was substituted. It was quickly taken up by other compilers, such as Laura Alexandrine Smith's Music of the Waters (published 1888). Lawson was the elder brother of artist Cecil Gordon Lawson. According to Andrew Kuntz, a collector of folk music lore, MacLeod was on a trip to the isle of Skye and was being rowed over Loch Coruisk (Coire Uisg, the "Cauldron of Waters") when the rowers broke into a Gaelic rowing song Cuachag nan Craobh ("The Cuckoo in the Grove"). Miss MacLeod set down what she remembered of the air, with the intention of using it later in a book she was to co-author with Boulton, who later added the section with the Jacobite associations. "As a piece of modern romantic literature with traditional links it succeeded perhaps too well, for soon people began "remembering" they had learned the song in their childhood, and that the words were 'old Gaelic lines'," Andrew Kuntz has observed.

Speed bonnie boat, like a bird on the wing, Onward, the sailors cry Carry the lad that's born to be King Over the sea to Skye! Loud the winds howl, loud the waves roar, Thunderclouds rend the air Baffled our foes stand on the shore, Follow they will not dare. Speed bonnie boat, like a bird on the wing, Onward, the sailors cry Carry the lad that's born to be King Over the sea to Skye! Though the waves leap, soft shall ye sleep, Ocean's a royal bed Rocked in the deep, Flora will keep Watch by your weary head. Speed bonnie boat, like a bird on the wing, Onward, the sailors cry Carry the lad that's born to be King Over the sea to Skye! Many's the lad fought on that day Well the Claymore could wield When the night came, silently lay Dead in Culloden's field. Speed bonnie boat, like a bird on the wing, Onward, the sailors cry Carry the lad that's born to be King Over the sea to Skye! Burned are their homes, exile and death Scatter the loyal men Yet ere the sword cool in the sheath Scotland will rise again! ------------------- Sing me a song of a lass that is gone Say, could that lass be I? Merry of soul she sailed on a day Over the sea to Skye Billow and breeze, islands and seas Mountains of rain and sun All that was good, all that was fair All that was me is gone Sing me a song of a lass that is gone Say, could that lass be I? Merry of soul she sailed on a day Over the sea to Skye

Venus Flytrap - Carnivorous Killer plants - Venusfliegenfalle - Kjötætuplanta - Pottaplanta

Venus Flytrap - Dionaea muscipula - Carnivorous Killer Plants - Venusfliegenfalle - Fliegenfalle - Karnivoren - Venusargildra - Kjötætuplanta - Flugugrípur - Venusargildra - Dionaea muscipula er kjötætuplanta sem grípur um og meltir flugur og kóngulær (en einnig önnur smádýr. Lauf Venusargildrunnar, sem eru samhverf, minna einna helst á litla kjafta. Inn í hverjum kjafti, sem helst opin þegar plantan er á veiðum, eru agnarsmá gikkhár sem loka laufkjaftinum þegar lífvera snertir við þeim. Á jöðrum laufanna eru broddhár, og þegar laufin læsa sig um dýrið, virka þau líkt og rimlar og halda því innilokuðu. http://is.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venusargildra The Venus Flytrap is a small plant whose structure can be described as a rosette of four to seven leaves, which arise from a short subterranean stem that is actually a bulb-like object. Each stem reaches a maximum size of about three to ten centimeters, depending on the time of year; longer leaves with robust traps are usually formed after flowering. Flytraps that have more than 7 leaves are colonies formed by rosettes that have divided beneath the ground. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venus_Flytrap The only two active snap traps—the Venus flytrap - Dionaea muscipula - and the waterwheel plant - Aldrovanda vesiculosa — are believed to have had a common ancestor with similar adaptations. Their trapping mechanism has also been described as a "mouse trap" based on their shape or rapid movement. The fly rub its legs over the top of a trigger hair. The trap shuts airtight. Then it fills with liquids containing enzymes which break down organic matter into simpler chemical compounds. These compouds are then used by the plant for growth. The trap constricts tightly around the insect and secretes digestive juices, much like those in your stomach. It dissolves the soft, inner parts of the insect, but not the tough, outer part called the exoskeleton. At the end of the digestive process, which takes from five to twelve days, the trap reabsorbs the digestive fluid and then reopens. The leftover parts of the insect, the exoskeleton, blow away in the wind or are washed away by rain. http://www.botany.org/bsa/misc/carn.html Dýrætur í jurtaríkinu Eftir: Ingimar Óskarsson í Náttúrufræðingnum 1970 : Árið 1769 fékk hinn heimsfrægi, sænski náttúrufræðingur Carl von Linné sendibréf frá enskum kaupmanni; sá hét John Ellis. Í bréfi þessu segir svo, meðal annars: ,,Ég sendi yður hér með nákvæma teikningu ásamt blöðum og blómi af einhverri jurt, sem virðist hafa annars konar mataræði en almennt gerist meðal jurta. Fremsti hluti blaðsins er eins konar veiðarfæri, gert úr tveim sepum, sem eru á nokkurs konar hjörum, og er þar agn fyrir skordýr: litlir, rauðir kirtlar, er gefa frá sér sætan safa, og ginnast dýrin til að bragða á honum. En skordýr er ekki fyrr búið að tylla einum fæti á blaðið en það fer á hreyfingu og smellir saman sepunum, svo að kvikindið fær þegar bana. "Það er augljóst, að jurt sú, sem Ellis er að lýsa, er flugugripirinn - svokallaði, er heima á í Norður-Ameríku. Menn skyldu ætla, að bréf þetta hefði vakið geysimikla athygli á meðal lærðra grasafræðinga, þar sem þetta var alger nýjung varðandi mataræði jurta. En svo varð þó ekki. Annaðhvort hafa menn haldið, að frásögn Ellis væri skröksaga ein. Loks sýndi náttúrufræðingurinn Darwin fram á það með rökum, að til væru jurtir, sem ætu dýr. Dionaea muscipula, - Flugugrípur veiðir tiltölulega lítið af flugum, heldur eru það vængjalausar maurategundir, bjöllur og önnur jarðbundin kvikindi, sem hún sendir inn í eilífðina. Stilkur blaðanna er nokkuð langur, vængjaður og ofurlítið rennulaga, og er einkar þægilegt fyrir skordýr að skríða þar um. Blaðkan er gerð úr tveimur bleðlum, sem leika eins og á hjörum um miðstrenginn. Á blaðröndunum eru allmörg stinn hár, og falla þau svo vel inn í millibil sín, á hvorri rönd, þegar blaðið leggst saman, að því er bezt líkt við spenntar greipar. Á hvorri blaðhelft eru 3 tilfinningarnæm hár, er senda boð um það, ef eitthvað veiðist, og fer þá morðvélin í gang. Segjum, að maur komi skríðandi eftir blaðstilknum. Honum lízt vel á blaðkögurinn og skilur ekki, að nokkur hætta geti verið fólgin í því að skreppa þangað; en hann er ekki fyrr kominn út á blöðkuna en blaðhelftirnar krækjast saman og þrýstast smátt og smátt æ fastar hvor að annarri, svo að maurinn verður innan tíðar að klessu. Jafnframt þessu byrja kirtlar á yfirborði blaðsins að framleiða meltingarsafa, og maurinn Ieysist upp. Það er mjög misjafnt, hve Iengi blaðhelftirnar eru samanklemmdar; fer það eftir því, hvað bráðin er stór, en það getur tekið allt að þremur vikum. http://timarit.is/view_page_init.jsp?pageId=4270191

A mere 50-minute train ride south from the capital and 30 minutes from Gatwick Airport, Brighton is one of the country's most vibrant cities, as befits its sobriquet 'London-By-The-Sea.' The mixture of historic architecture, elegant esplanade, narrow passageways (or 'twittens' in the local vernacular), leafy parks and multifarious nightlife ensure the city will cater to any visitor's palate.

Þetta eru fjölmargar göngugötur í allar áttir út frá einni miðju, rétt hestvagnsbreiðar. Sums staðar eru traðirnar svo mjóar að hægt að heilsast með handabandi yfir götuna. Traðirnar eru elsti hluti borgarinnar og ber þess glöggt merki í húsa- og gatnagerð. Núna hafa framsæknir athafnamenn lagt undir sig gömlu, þröngu smáhýsin sem áður fyrr voru heimili sjómanna og opnað þar fjölbreytta verslun og þjónustu. Þar er fullt af skrýtnum búðum og má þar helst nefna skartgripaverslanirnar sem eru alveg ótrúlega margar, fjölmargar antikbúðir, tískuverslanir, skóbúðir, veitingastaðir, kaffihús og gamlar krár.

Since returning he has put his studio experiences to good use and has completed six albums, and over the last 5 years he has sold close to 15,000 copies from gigs and street performances with many fans coming back, looking for more.

Seen in Chichester - West Sussex 9.9.2017. Thank you Neil Mallon - The living statue show. It's an old indian trick, levitating / levitation / floating - Metitating man - Skemmtiatriði - Götulist - Lifandi stytta - Ferðalag í Englandi - Street busking, in the centre of the city of Chichester. There is a steel plate on the pavement. In the corner of the plate, there is a rod sticking out. Into this, the there is a steel platform, on which the performers sits. The steel tube which holds the platform runs up his trousers sleeve. Levitating man trick revealed : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UeqZEshk2XQ The Floating and Levitating Man.

The city centre stands on the foundations of the Romano-British city of Noviomagus Reginorum, capital of the Civitas Reginorum. The Roman road of Stane Street, connecting the city with London, started at the east gate, while the Chichester to Silchester road started from the north gate. The plan of the city is inherited from the Romans: the North, South, East and West shopping streets radiate from the central market cross dating from medieval times. The original Roman city wall was over two metres thick with a steep ditch (which was later used to divert the River Lavant). It survived for over one and a half thousand years but was then replaced by a thinner Georgian wall. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chichester Historic Cathedral City of Chichester in the South of England... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRChI85RAYs This was the third film from Barry Pyatt through AngelFilms about towns in West Sussex.

Robin - Erithacus rubecula  - Rødhals - Glóbrystingur -  Fuglar - Söngfugl

English Robin - Erithacus rubecula - Petirrojo Europeo - Rødhals - Roodborst - Rødkælk - Rødstrupe - Rotkehlchen - Vörösbegy - Rödhake - Cervenka obecná - Punarinta - Pisco-de-peito-ruivo - Rotkehlchen - Pettirosse - Rougegorge - Glóbrystingur - Garðfugl. One of my favorite birds singing on a cold morning. Nov 2014. Ungi sem var með dún á bakinu í sumar hefur fulorðnast - en er mjög gæfur og flögrar kringum mann í garðinum. The sexes are very similar, but juveniles lack the red breast and are mottled with browns and buffs. The robin is one of the few birds to sing throughout the winter; its melodious, liquid song is a further feature that has endeared this species to the public. A short 'tick' call is also produced. Robins are very territorial birds throughout the year; in winter both males and females defend their own territory, and males often hold the same territory throughout their lives. Territories are defended by means of singing from a prominent perch, and by aggressively driving intruders away. During the breeding season, a female is allowed into a male's territory; she makes the cup-shaped nest of dead leaves and moss with a lining of hair. The nest is often located in unusual places, such as in old teapots, jacket pockets, and on shelves in buildings, as well as in more 'natural' locations such as amongst ivy. See more: http://www.arkive.org/robin/erithacus-rubecula/ The song of the Robin birds is loud and upbeat - in contrast with its mournful sounding - muted winter renditions, Each throaty outburst is a challenge as males battle for territory and females. Birds can be annoying early mornings and ruins your lie-ins. The earliest riser in the morning is the Blackbird - which usually begins foraging 11 minutes after daybreak. It is thought its relatively large eyes help it see better in the dim light of dawn than other birds. Ten minutes later the Robins and Blue tits start singing - followed by the Dunnock, Fieldfare, Magpie and Song Thrush. Meanwhile, some of nature´s noisiest singers, such as the Mistle Thrush, Jackdaw, House Sparrow and Starling - become active half an hour after daybreak. Among the laziest birds which don´t start until 50 minutes after sunrise are the Magpie and Corrion Crow, while not great singers - they are a very noisy alarm clock. Glóbrystingur er einn elskaðasti garðfuglinn í Evrópu sem er alstaðar velkominn. Hann er auðþekkjanlegur á rauðu brjósti, andliti og glaðlegum söng. Þrátt fyrir að margir telji hann vinalegan fugl þá er hann mjög árásargjarn og passar sitt yfirráðasvæði fyrir öðrum fuglum mjög vel. Það er ástæðan fyrir að hann syngur á veturna en þá er hann að láta aðra fugla vita af því að þetta sé hans svæði..... líka á veturna. Þegar karlfuglar lenda í slag er oft að annar þeirra lifir það ekki af. Í mars byrjar pörun karl og kvenfugla og sér kvenfuglinn einn um hreiðurgerðina sem er ofið saman af mosa og þurrum laufblöðum. Eggin eru hvít með rauðbrúnum flekkjum og er algengt að verpt sé um 4-6 eggjum. Ungarnir koma úr eggjunum eftir tvær vikur. Þeir eru fleygir tveimur vikum seinna. Foreldrarnir fæða ungana í þrjár vikur eftir að þeir eru orðnir fleygir. Hvert par kemur frá sér tveimur ungahópum á einu sumri. Talið er að í Bretlandi sé að finna um 5-6 milljónir para eða um 10 pör á hverjum sq km. Glóbrystingar eru smáir um 14 sm og aðeins um 18 grömm með vænghaf upp á 21 sm. Þeir verða að meðaltali 2 ára gamlir en til eru frásagnir í Bretlandi af fugli sem varð yfir 8 ára gamall. Glóbrystingur borðar aðalega skordýr, orma, lirfur köngulær en fúlsar ekki við að fá sér smávegis af berjum og aldinum á haustin og jafnvel korni á hörðum vetrarmánuðum. Widespread in England. The male is familiar red brested and sings variation of melancholy song at most of the year. Robin is highly territorial. If you hear a bird singing in England on Christmas its likely a Robin. This is because these birds hold their territories all year round defending against intruders with song. Despite their cute appearance they are very aggressive and some have even been known to defind their territories to the death. After Christmas their song becomes stronger and more passionate as they begin to seek a mate and start pair up in january. Hraðfleygustu fuglar heims er Múrsvölungur, Apus apus sem getur náð 69 mph - Loftsveima, Hirundapus celebensis sem getur náð 105 mph, Albatrossi, Thalassarche chrysostoma sem nær 78 mph, Kólíbrífuglar, Calypte anna sem ná 60 mph, Lundi, Fratercula arctica sem nær 55 mph, Æðarfugl, Somateria mollissima sem nær 47 mph, Förufálki, Falco peregrinus sem nær 186 mph og ekki margir sem hafa tærnar þar sem fálkar hafa hælana.

Lupino - ルピナス属 - Obrnika - Acı bakla - Wölfisch - Tremoço - Lupiin - Lúpína - Úlfabaunir - Garðalúpína af Ertublómaætt. Það er auðvelt að koma Russell Lúpínum til af fræjum og blómstra þær um 11. vikum eftir sáningu. Fjölmörg afbrigði af mismunandi tegundablöndun er hægt að kaupa hjá blómasölum - eða safna fræum og sá þeim um vor. Skrautlúpína Lupinus x polyphyllus er blendingur nokkra villtra tegunda, og geta blendingar þessir verið nokkuð ólíkir. Sjá meira: http://rettarholl.is/plontur/skrautlupina.html Russel viðaði að sér fræi og plöntum frá öllum heimshornum, sáði, valdi úr, frjóvgaði og víxlfrjóvgaði, valdi enn úr og aðeins það ailra besta fékk náð fyrir augum hans. Hinu var hafnað. „Sérvitur sauður," sögðu menn. Þannig liðu árin. Vakinn og sofinn var Russel karlinn á kafi í lúpínunum sínum — í bókstaflegri merkingu. En nú fór ýmsum að verða starsýnt yfir girðinguna hjá gamla manninum og margir vildu gjarnan eignast fræ eða græðlinga, einkum fulltrúar fræverslana og garðyrkjustöðva, — en Russel sagði þvert nei. Hann var enn ekki kominn á leiðarenda. Það var ekki fyrr en árið 1935, eftir meira en tveggja áratuga þrotlaust starf, að hann var tilbúinn og seldi einkaleyfið til Baker´s sem sá um markaðsetninguna : http://timarit.is/view_page_init.jsp?... Fræ lúpínunnar eru í belgjum og þegar þau eru fullþroskuð myndast spenna í hulstri belgsins sem veldur því að fræin spítast út í loftið þegar hulstrið rofnar. Þetta gerist oftast í sól því þá snögg þornar hulstrið. Þetta er aðferð lúpínunnar við að fjölga sér og breiðast út. Lúpínan vex í samvinnu við köfnunarefnisbindandi bakteríur í jarðveginum og vinnur köfnunarefni (N) úr andrúmsloftinu. "N" eykur vöxt þess hluta allra plantna sem ofanjarðar er svo sem túngrasa. http://www.simnet.is/bensib/einka/Aus... The herbaceous lupinus, - Lupinus polyphyllus - arrived in Britain from North America in the 1820s brought over by David Douglas. Almost a century later, George Russell, a 53-year-old horticulturalist from UK York started to breed the famous Russell hybrids - Lupinus X russellii hort. - Lupinus polphyllus - originally were of basic colours and had large gaps in the flowering spike. Without the use of modern day plant breeding techniques, Russell took to ruthlessly pulling out any plants which he deemed to be unacceptable in growth or display. He spent two decades single-mindedly trying to breed the perfect lupin, crossing - L. polyphyllus - with - L. arboreus - and one or more annual species - L. nootkatensis -. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lupinus_... RussellLupinus grow wild and adorn the countryside of New Zealand's South Island in summer. These spectacular blossoms in the wilderness colour the landscape in every imaginable colour. These images were taken in and around Lake Tekapo Mt Cook National Park and Lake Manapouri in December. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jc2UJP... Aftur á móti er Íslenska Alaskalúpínan - Lupinus nootkatensis - allt annan uppruna en RusselLúpínan. Alaskalúpínan var flutt inn til Íslands frá Alaska haustið 1945 af Hákoni Bjarnasyni. Talið er að hún hafi þó áður borist til landsins seint á 19. öld og verið notuð sem skrautjurt í görðum. Eins og aðrar belgjurtir myndar lúpínan sambýli með niturbindandi örverum og getur því vaxið vel á rýru landi án áburðargjafar. Lúpínan hefur allmikið verið notuð í uppgræðslu á undanförnum árum og er notuð til að mynda gróðurþekju og byggja upp frjósaman jarðveg. Sá galli er þó á gjöf Njarðar að lúpínan getur myndað þéttar breiður þar sem lágvaxnari gróður á erfitt uppdráttar.

Philodendron in Flower -  Kærleikstré - Pottaplanta - Rifblaðka - Blóm
 
04:18
Philodendron - Philodendron bipinnatifidum - Philodendron selloum - or - Monstera deliciosa - Kærleikstré - Rifblaðka - When philodendrons are ready to reproduce they will produce an inflorescence which consists of a leaf-like hood called a spathe within which is enclosed a tube-like structure called a spadix. Depending on the species of philodendron, a single inflorescence can be produced or a cluster of up to 11 inflorescences can be produced at a single time on short peduncles. The spathe tends to be waxy and its usually bicolored. In some philodendrons the base of the spathe is of a contrasting color with the upper part, and in others the inner and outer surface of the spathe differ in coloration. The upper portion of the spathe is called the limb or blade, while the lower portion of the spathe is called the convolute tube or chamber due to its tubular structure at the base. The spadix is more often than not white and shorter than the spathe. On the spadix are found fertile female, fertile male, and sterile male flowers. The fertile male and female flowers are separated on the spadix by a sterile zone or staminodal region composed of sterile male flowers. This barrier of sterile male flowers ensures that fertile male flowers don't fertilize the female flowers. The arrangement tends to be vertical, with fertile male flowers at the top of the spadix followed by sterile male flowers, and fertile female flowers very close to the bottom in the region known as the spathe tube or chamber. The fertile female flowers are often not receptive to fertilization when the fertile males are producing pollen which again prevents self-pollination. The pollen itself is thread-like and appears to project out from the region where the fertile male flowers are located. Some philodendrons have extrafloral nectaries (nectar-producing glands found outside of the flowers). The nectar attracts ants, with which the plant enjoys a protective symbiotic relationship. How to tell Monstera deliciosa from Philodendron bipinnatifidum. See more: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7_8VQzuEpw Nectaries can be found in a variety of locations on the plant, including the stalks, sheaths, lower surfaces of the leaves, and spathes. The nectaries produce a sweet sticky substance that the ants like to eat and which provides an incentive for them to build their nests amongst the roots of the given philodendron. Sexual reproduction is achieved by means of beetles, with many philodendron species requiring the presence of a specific beetle species to achieve pollination. The reverse is not always the case, as many beetle species will pollinate more than one philodendron species. The beetles that do the pollinating are males and members of the subfamily Rutelinae and Dynastinae. The spathe serves the purpose of providing a safe breeding area for the beetles. As such the male beetles are often followed by female beetles with the intent of mating with the male beetles within the spathe. The philodendrons benefit from this symbiotic relationship because the male beetles will eventually leave the spathe covered in pollen and repeat the process at another philodendron; pollinating it in the process and thus providing philodendrons a means of sexual reproduction. The male beetles benefit from this relationship with the philodendrons because they don't have to produce pheromones to attract females since the philodendrons do it for them. Additionally, male beetles benefit from the fact that they are ensured of mating with only sexually receptive females, something that is not necessarily certain if the beetle is flying through the rainforest in search of females. In doing so, the philodendron provides male beetles a means of finding female beetles that proves to be more efficient than what it could achieve on its own. Interestingly, there is some evidence to suggest that the pheromones produced by the philodendrons are similar to those produced by female beetles when they wish to attract males to mate, although as of yet this isn't conclusive. Also, the pheromones produced has a sweet fruity smell in many species and no noticeable smell for others. In addition to the reproductive benefits provided to the male beetles the philodendrons provide food in two forms. Pollen from the fertile male flowers are edible and are eaten by the beetles throughout the night. Secondly, the sterile male flowers themselves are consumed by the beetles and are rich in lipids. The male beetles will stay overnight in the spathe, eating and mating throughout the night due to the benefits provided by the spathe and spadix. Typically, 5 to 12 beetles will be within the spathe throughout the night. However, rarely cases of 200 beetles at a time have been observed and almost always the beetles are of the same species : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philodendron Filmed with Panasonic Lumix DMC- TZ20 camera.

Buddhist  and a beggar  - Buddamunkar og betlari  í Englandi
 
01:28
Buddhist and a poor barefoot man sitting on the street - Cittaviveka is a "Forest Monastery" in the lineage of Ajahn Chah, where the emphasis is on training in terms of the precepts and renunciation established by the Vinaya (the Buddhist Monastic Code), and on a communal lifestyle. The monastery is mostly made up of woodland and heath (Hammer Wood) which has a few kutīs (huts [Thai]) for monks and nuns, but communal activities, teaching and guest accommodation are situated in two adjacent houses -- Chithurst House (for men) and Āloka Cottage (for women). Hammer Wood was given to the Sangha in 1978-9, an act which precipitated the purchase of the semi-derelict Chithurst House which stood nearby. Later in 1979, another nearby cottage was purchased. This was renamed Āloka Cottage. Ajahn Sucitto, another one of the original founders, became Abbot in June 7. 1992. Work on developing the monastery continued with further kutis in Hammer Wood, and then the construction of a large meditation hall (Dhamma Hall) on the site of a ruined coachhouse in the grounds of Chithurst House (1998--2004). In 2006, the English Sangha Trust purchased another house for nuns, situated opposite to Āloka and now called Rocana Vihāra. The nuns live there largely autonomous from the male monastic community. Two or three members of the community currently go to the local towns on alms-rounds (pindapāda) for their daily meal on a couple of days of each week. The traditional wayfaring practice (tudong [Thai from Pāli "dhutanga" -- "austere") of walking cross-country for several weeks, living on alms and sleeping out is also an established voluntary practice during the warmer months of the year. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chithurst_Buddhist_Monastery Cittaviveka is a monastery in the lineage of the Thai Forest Tradition of Theravada Buddhism. It was established in 1979 by Ajahn Chah and Ajahn Sumedho, who was the first abbot. The current abbot is Ajahn Sucitto who was born in London in 1949 and became a bhikkhu in 1976. The resident community comprises some 20-25 monks, nuns and novices, as well as lay guests. http://www.cittaviveka.org/ Amaravati Buddhist Monastery is a monastery in the Thai Forest Tradition of the Theravada lineage of Buddhism. Amaravati is a centre of teaching and practice. It is located in Great Gaddesden, in the Chiltern Hills, near Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, England. Amaravati means "Deathless Realm" in Pāli, the scriptural language of the ancient Buddhist Pali Canon. The temple was founded by the disciples of the noted Thai meditation master, Luang Por Chah (1918-1992). Its current abbot is Ajahn Sumedho. In addition to the monks' and nuns' residences, there are accommodations for long-term lay residents and shorter-term lay guests. Amaravati has a retreat centre, where meditation retreats of varying lengths are held for lay people. Both the monastery and the retreat centre are run on dana (free-will donations). Amaravati was created in 1984 when the English Sangha Trust purchased a residential school (previously an army base) from Buckinghamshire County Council. It is linked to Cittaviveka (Chithurst Buddhist Monastery) in West Sussex, and to monasteries in Devon, Northumberland, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Switzerland, North America and Thailand. Amaravati officially opened in 1985. In the late 1990s, a temple building was constructed. It was officially opened by the King of Thailand's sister, Princess Galyani Vadhana, on the 4th of July, 1999. The nuns at Amaravati (and Cittaviveka) are part of the ten-precept order created by Ajahn Sumedho at Cittaviveka in 1983. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xlg5AO49_dY Barefoot (also barefooted) is the state of not wearing any footwear.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barefoot

Mary Gorniak playing the flute - Greensleeves - English folk song

Greensleeves - Traditional English Folk Song. Here is a video of flutist Mary Gorniak performing at a residents party in Pendean House 9. sept 2014. Tilbrigði við enska 16. aldar þjóðlagið Greensleeves. Mary Gorniak, professional flute player - more information: http://www.carehome.co.uk/supplier.cfm/searchazref/65432195143 Beautiful. It's so relaxing. Since Greensleeves is a folk tune, it has many different forms. This page relates the history of one of the most famous melodies in the world of music, and one of the most ancient too - a melody with links to Tudor England, a melody which has heartfelt melancholic lyrics, a melody of so many interpretations in the fields of folk and classical music, and a melody so evocative of England and the English countryside. Greensleeves has existed for more than 400 years. It is a song and a tune which will exist for another 400 years. During the Tudor era, the sleeves of ladies' gowns and dresses were not always a part of the clothing, but were attached with lace. Hence a gown may have green sleeves, even if the dominant hue was different. And the sleeve colour may be significant. Interpretations assigned to the phrase 'Greensleeves' usually have a sexual connotation. It's been suggested that green was symbolic of promiscuity, and that 'Lady' Greensleeves may have been a prostitute. (The 'green sleeves' may even refer to grass stains due to a habit of making love outdoors!) However, the song lyrics mention a 'discourteous rejection of the singer's advances' suggesting to some that the lady in question was virtuous, but perhaps mistaken for a prostitute as a result of her green sleeves. Another explanation is quite the opposite in every respect - in heraldry colour also had symbolisms, and green indicated truth and fidelity - a knight may give a green armband to his true love to wear, to indicate his devotion (giving rise to the phrase 'wearing your heart on your sleeve', meaning to show your true feelings). See more: http://greensleeves-hubs.hubpages.com/hub/FolkSongGreensleeves-Greensleeves The famous tune Greensleeves - possibly composed by Henry VIII himself. A traditional English song, there is no consensus on who composed "Greensleeves." It has been attributed to Henry VIII, the much married King of England, with speculation that the words were inspired by Katherine of Aragon or Ann Boleyn. The first mention of the song in recorded history dates only from 1580, some 33 years after Henry's death. See more: http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=8685 Greensleeves folk song. Greensleeves was all my joy Greensleeves was my delight, Greensleeves was my heart of gold, And who but my lady greensleeves. Alas, my love, you do me wrong, To cast me off discourteously. For I have loved you well and long, Delighting in your company. Alas, my love, that you should own A heart of wanton vanity, So must I meditate alone Upon your insincerity. Your vows you've broken, like my heart, Oh, why did you so enrapture me? Now I remain in a world apart But my heart remains in captivity. If you intend thus to disdain, It does the more enrapture me, And even so, I still remain A lover in captivity. I have been ready at your hand, To grant whatever you would crave, I have both wagered life and land, Your love and good-will for to have. Thou couldst desire no earthly thing, But still thou hadst it readily. Thy music still to play and sing; And yet thou wouldst not love me. I bought thee kerchiefs for thy head, That were wrought fine and gallantly; I kept thee at both board and bed, Which cost my purse well-favoredly. I bought thee petticoats of the best, The cloth so fine as it might be; I gave thee jewels for thy chest, And all this cost I spent on thee. Thy smock of silk, both fair and white, With gold embroidered gorgeously; Thy petticoat of sendal right, And these I bought thee gladly. My men were clothed all in green, And they did ever wait on thee; All this was gallant to be seen, And yet thou wouldst not love me. They set thee up, they took thee down, They served thee with humility; Thy foot might not once touch the ground, And yet thou wouldst not love me. Well, I will pray to God on high, That thou my constancy mayst see, And that yet once before I die, Thou wilt vouchsafe to love me. Ah, Greensleeves, now farewell, adieu, To God I pray to prosper thee, For I am still thy lover true, Come once again and love me.

Masters in this Hall - Here is a music video of piccolo flutist, Mary Gorniak - professional flute and piccolo player - beautiful performances of this wonderful song at a Christmas residents party in BUPA Pendean House 22. 12. 2014. Flautuleikur. "Masters in This Hall" (alternative title: "Nowell, Sing We Clear") is a Christmas carol with words written around 1860 by William Morris to an old French dance tune. The carol is moderately popular around the world but has not entered the canon of most popular carols. The words were written around 1860 while William Morris was working as an apprentice in the office of the architect, Edmund Street, presumably under the persuasion of his fellow students who at that time had a taste for part-song.

Papaver rhoeas - Valmúi - Deplasól - Garðasól - Sumarblóm - Garðagróður

Common Poppy - Papaver rhoeas - Valmúi - Deplasól - Garðasól - Skrautvalmúi - Einstaklega skemmtileg garðplanta sem blómstrar sumarlangt og er mjög harðger og nægjusöm jurt. Þarna kemur stór hunangsfluga í heimsókn - flugur elska valmúa. The striking red flowers of the poppy make this one easy to recognise. In flower from June through to September with the flowers lasting just a day before the petals drop off and blow away. It's a prodigious seeder with a possible output of 20,000 seeds per plant. The seed need light to germinate and is a shallow germinator. They can last for years in the soil until brought to the surface by cultivation or soil disturbance. : http://www.teagasc.ie/publications/2010/55/55_Guide_to_Identifying_Tillage_Weeds.pdf Corn Poppy - Papaver rhoeas - is an annual herb growing up to 60 cm tall, with white latex and slender roots. The leaves are once or twice pinnately lobed, cut or toothed and stiffly hairy. The basal leaves are stalked, but the upper leaves are sessile (attached to the stem without a stalk). The showy scarlet flowers are 7-10 cm in diameter and are supported on long hairy stalks. The two free sepals fall as the flower opens. Each flower bears four rounded, overlapping, papery petals, which are normally vibrant blood red, though occasionally pink or white, and often have a dark blotch at the base. The petals are crumpled when in bud. The stamens (male parts) are numerous and the anthers (pollen-bearing parts) are bluish-black, and borne on slender black filaments. The stigma (female part that receives the pollen) is a disk with 8-12 rays. The fruit is a smooth, hairless capsule 1-2 cm long, which is almost globose and no more than twice as long as wide. The small seeds are released through pores that open at the top of the capsule. They can remain dormant in the soil for 80 years or more. The association between poppies and the cycle of life has a long history, partly due to the fertile nature of the plant. A single plant can produce up to 60,000 seeds, which extrapolates to hundreds of millions of seeds in a field. It is also a result of the association of poppies with crop plants, and the yearly cycle of sowing seeds and reaping the harvest. Poppy seeds have been found mixed with Egyptian barley grains from around 2500 BC, and poppy seed heads were often associated with corn in images of the Roman crop goddess Ceres (or her Greek equivalent, Demeter). The common poppy is a cultural icon which has become associated with wartime remembrance, especially during Remembrance Day (or Anzac Day in some Commonwealth countries). It also has a long history of medicinal use. The flowers have been used in treating mild pain caused by earache, toothache and neuralgia, and an infusion of the petals is traditionally taken for coughs, insomnia and poor digestion. Poppy seeds have a nutty taste and are much used as a flavouring in cakes and bread, and the seed oil is highly esteemed in France and elsewhere. Young leaves of poppy can be eaten raw or cooked like spinach, and used to flavour soups and salads. They are best used when tender before the plant has produced flower buds. The petals are a source of red dye used in some medicines and wines. Dried petals are occasionally used to give colour to pot-pourris. Shirley poppies are ornamental cultivars of the common poppy, with petals ranging in colour from shades of scarlet and orange, to pink, yellow and white, in single, semi-double or double forms. http://www.kew.org/plants-fungi/Papaver-rhoeas.htm The plant is a variable annual, forming a long-lived soil seed bank that can germinate when the soil is disturbed. In the northern hemisphere it generally flowers in late spring, but if the weather is warm enough other flowers frequently appear at the beginning of autumn. The flower is large and showy, with four petals that are vivid red, most commonly with a black spot at their base. Like many other species of Papaver, it exudes a white latex when the tissues are broken. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papaver_rhoeas Deplasól verður 70 cm. Hún spírar á 14-20 dögum við 12°C.

Bee mimic flies - Greater Bee-Fly are excellent pollinator - Gorgeous Hover fly - Tvívængja - Loðfluga að drekka hunang frá Mánasjóð - Tunglblómi - Vorfluga. Small furry insects darting and hovering around low growing flowers. Greater Bee-Fly. Early spring insects - which has a very long proboscis. The female traps her abdmen on the ground to coat her eggs with dirt as ballast, thenfires them at a solitary bee´s burrow. Once hatched - the bee-fly grubs devour the bee larvae. Adult drink nectar from flowers through their tongues. It's hairy like a bee, hovers and hums, and has a scary looking spike at one end! The large bee-fly is making its springtime appearance in parts of the UK and causing curiosity at the Natural History Museum's Identification and Advisory Service. People have seen the strange looking creatures darting around flowerbeds and are wondering what they are and if they sting. They may look like a cross between a bee and a giant mosquito, but these insects are a type of fly called a bee-fly, in the family Bombyliidae. Flies have only a single pair of functional wings, whereas bees have 2 pairs. See more: http://www.nhm.ac.uk/about-us/news/2011/april/bee-mimic-flies-in-to-a-garden-near-you96805.html Bombylius major eins og hún nefnist á fræðimáli kallast á íslensku Loðfluga eða stóra loðfluga.: http://is.wiktionary.org/wiki/lo%C3%B0fluga Loðflugan er ekki býfluga en þróunin hefur búið svo um hnútana að hún líkist humlum. Það kallast hermun (e. mimicry) þegar tegundir líkjast nákvæmlega öðrum tegundum eða jafnvel hlutum og er tilgangurinn oftar en ekki að tryggja sér vernd eða leynast fyrir óvinum. Slíkt er algengt meðal skriðdýra (Reptilia). Stóra loðflugan er stór tvívængja - Dipteria - 12-17 mm á lengd og vel loðin.

Mjög góð í þurrblómaskreytingar. : http://www.lystigardur.akureyri.is/?modID=1&id=44&grSId=84 The large bee-fly - Bombylius major - has a long, slender tongue called a proboscis, which looks frightening to some. But bee-flies are harmless to humans. They do not bite or spread disease and their proboscis is for reaching flower nectar to feed on. : http://www.nhm.ac.uk/about-us/news/2011/april/bee-mimic-flies-in-to-a-garden-near-you96805.html Many insects mimic other insects. There are many good reasons for so doing but two popular theories are that in some cases it helps them to ward off potential predators and in other cases it can fool potential prey that they are harmless. : http://www.pbase.com/laroseforest/mimicry The adult is 14 to 18 millimetres (0.55 to 0.71 in) in length, squat and very hairy, with a wingspan of around 24 mm (0.94 in). It has dark patches on the anterior half of the wings and long hairy legs that dangle while in flight. The very long proboscis is used to feed on the nectar of many species of flower, especially primroses. While its wings continue to beat its front legs grip the flower and its long rigid beak is inserted to collect the nectar. : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bombylius_major Furry like a bee yet a true member of the order Diptera, common flies, there are twelve species of bee-fly in this country but this is the largest and most common, Bombylius major. : http://natureofdorset.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/bee-fly-bombylius-major.html The latin name Lunaria means "moon-like" and refers to the decorative seedpods. They have hairy toothed leaves and terminal racemes of white or violet flowers in Spring and Summer, followed by prominent, translucent, disc-shaped seedpods, which are frequently seen in flower arrangements. : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lunaria This plant is easy to grow from seed. It is usually grown as a biennial, being sown one year to flower the next. It is suitable for cultivation in a shady or dappled area, or in a wildflower garden, and the flowers and dried seedpods are often seen in flower arrangements. : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lunaria_annua Filmed with Panasonic Lumix DMC- TZ20 camera.

The city centre stands on the foundations of the Romano-British city of Noviomagus Reginorum, capital of the Civitas Reginorum. The Roman road of Stane Street, connecting the city with London, started at the east gate, while the Chichester to Silchester road started from the north gate. The plan of the city is inherited from the Romans: the North, South, East and West shopping streets radiate from the central market cross dating from medieval times. The original Roman city wall was over two metres thick with a steep ditch (which was later used to divert the River Lavant). It survived for over one and a half thousand years but was then replaced by a thinner Georgian wall. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chichester

Grow in fertile, well-drained soil that does not dry out in summer; best in full sun with some midday shade. Ideal for wall or paving crevices but can self-seed and become invasive in mild areas : http://apps.rhs.org.uk/plantselector/plant?plantid=729 Bombus lapidarius, Red tailed bumblebee - is probably the most easily recognised species with its black body and bright orange tail. Although its body is as long as that of B. terrestris it is not as heavily built. The workers have the same colouring as the queen, but they are much smaller; some of the early workers are no bigger than house flies. The males (below and above left) have similar colouring, but with more yellow hair. These bees prefer to nest underground and the base of dry stone dykes and walls are popular locations. The size of the nest can vary considerably from over 200 bees to less than 100. They have comparatively short tongues (see the photograph below showing a male extending his tongue) and prefer flowers that form a distinct landing platform, such as daisies, dandelions and thistles. The heads of these flowers are made up of many small florets each containing only a small quantity of nectar. While on these flowers the bees probe many times and walk around the flower rather than fly. So the bees are going for a low yield of nectar per probe, but minimum time and energy between probes.

Wisley Glasshouse - Philodendron selloum  - Kærleikstré  - Garðskálaplanta
 
01:03
Lacy tree philodendron - Philodendron selloum - Kærleikstré - Rifblaðka. Philodendron plöntur blómstra venjulega ekki fyrr en 15-20 ára. Blómin opna sig og eru heimsótt af bjöllum sem sjá um frjóvgunina en blómið hefur þann eiginleika að loka sér yfir nótt svo bjöllurnar verði örugglega löðrandi í frjókorni. Það eru þrjár tegundir blóma á kólfinum frjó kvenblóm, frjó karlblóm og svo ófrjó karlblóm sem eru einskonar girðing milli hinna tveggja til að koma í veg fyrir sjálfsfrjóvgun. Philodendron bipinnatifidum (common names: lacy tree philodendron, selloum) is a plant that belongs to the family Araceae. The commonly used name Philodendron selloum is a synonym (Mayo 1991). This plant is native to South America, namely to Brazil, Bolivia, Argentina, and Paraguay but is also cultivated as a landscape plant in the gulf coast and east coast of the United States, such as in Florida. This plant is also cultivated as a landscape plant in tropical Asian countries such as the Philippines. Heinrich Wilhelm Schott (1794--1865), one of the earliest botanists who studied the Araceae family, did extensive studies of Philodendrons. The names Philodendron bipinnatifidum and Philodendron selloum were accepted as two separate species in the past. However, recent studies focused on the sexual characteristics suggest that they are multiform of the same species. Botanist Simon Mayo documented that these were names of the same plant species that exhibited slight anatomical differences. Since the name Philodendron bipinnatifidum was the first of the two to be published in the literatures, it was accepted as the scientific name. Species within the genus Philodendron are poisonous to vertebrates, but vary in their toxicity levels. They contain calcium oxalate crystals in raphid bundles, which are poisonous and irritating. P. bipinnatifidum sap may cause skin irritation. Chewing and/or ingesting parts of the plant may result in severe swelling and compromised respiratory functions. : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philodendron_bipinnatifidum When philodendrons are ready to reproduce they will produce an inflorescence which consists of a leaf-like hood called a spathe within which is enclosed a tube-like structure called a spadix. Depending on the species of philodendron, a single inflorescence can be produced or a cluster of up to 11 inflorescences can be produced at a single time on short peduncles. Philodendron can be shrubs, trees or climbers, with glossy, leathery, evergreen, simple to pinnately divided leaves, and tiny flowers borne within arum-like white, green or reddish spathes. P. bipinnatifidum is an evergreen shrub with long-stalked leaves to 1m in length, pinnately divided into narrow, undulate, dark green lobes. Purple and cream spathes 30cm in length appear occasionally: http://apps.rhs.org.uk/plantselector/plant?plantid=3797 Toxicity - All parts may cause severe discomfort if ingested and the contact with the sap may irritate the skin or eyes.

I'm singing in the rain Just singing in the rain What a glorious feelin' I'm happy again I'm laughing at clouds So dark up above The sun's in my heart And I'm ready for love Let the stormy clouds chase Everyone from the place Come on with the rain I've a smile on my face I walk down the lane With a happy refrain Just singin', Singin' in the rain Dancin' in the rain Dee-ah dee-ah dee-ah Dee-ah dee-ah dee-ah I'm happy again! I'm singin' and dancin' in the rain! I'm dancin' and singin' in the rain... Why am I smiling And why do I sing? Why does September Seem sunny as spring? Why do I get up Each morning and start? Happy and head up With joy in my heart Why is each new task A trifle to do? Because I am living A life full of you.

See more: http://www.barchester.com/home/worplesdon-view-care-home/life-at-our-home In October 1874 Waldteufel played at an event that was attended by the then Prince of Wales, future King Edward VII of the United Kingdom. The Prince was enthralled by Waldteufel's "Manolo" waltz, and was prepared to make Waldteufel's music known in Britain.[4] A long-term contract with the London-based editor Hopwood & Crew followed. Part of the company belonged to Charles Coote[disambiguation needed], director of the Coote & Tinney’s Band, the first dance orchestra in London. Through these means, Waldteufel's music was played at Buckingham Palace in front of Queen Victoria. Waldteufel dominated the music scene in London and became world-famous. During this period he composed his best known works, many of which are still heard today around the world. He became best known for the waltz "Les Patineurs" (The Ice Skaters), composed in 1882. See more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%89mile_Waldteufel Known in English as The Skaters' Waltz, it was composed in 1882 and was inspired by the Cercle des Patineurs or 'Rink of Skaters' at the Bois de Boulogne in Paris. His introduction to the waltz can be likened to the poise of a skater and the glissando notes invoke scenes of a wintry atmosphere.

White Bryony is Britain’s only native member of the cucumber family. Bryonia is a genus of flowering plant in the gourd family. Bryony is its best-known common name. This hedgerow climber is such a strong laxative that, even in the 16th century, its unrestrained medicinal use was not recommended. Those men who bought bryony root, thinking it to be mandrake, may have been 'up all night' but not in the way they'd hoped. As an example of how large the root grows, John Gerard says that the Queen’s surgeon, William Goderous, showed him a root weighing half a hundredweight and the size of a one year old child. This vigorous root growth meant it could be used to produce a counterfeit mandrake root. Either by placing moulds around the growing plant or by digging it up, carving it to shape and reburying it, bryony roots can be made to look like mandrake and the plant was sold as mandrake by ‘mountebacks and charlatans’ according to at least one contemporary writer. Sadly, it is not clear whether the author was so appalled because these fakers cut into his profits from growing real mandrake or whether he had fallen victim to the unpleasant effects. See more: http://www.thepoisongarden.co.uk/atoz/bryonia_dioica.htm Bryonia - known by the common names red bryony and white bryony, is a perennial climbing vine indigenous to Central and Southern Europe. It is a flowering plant of the genus Bryonia with five-pointed leaves and blue or white flowers. The vine produces a red berry fruit. B. dioica is generally toxic to humans. Application of its juice to the skin produces inflammation with a rash or ulcers, and consumption of this juice causes intense gastrointestinal irritation including nausea and vomiting in small doses, and anxiety, paralysis, or death in larger amounts. See more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bryonia_dioica From the Greek bryo, to shoot or grow rapidly, a reference to its vigorous growing habit of sprouting each year from the tuber roots. Dioscorides however calls it ‘Bruonia Ampelos’. Bruonia is Greek for ‘to swell’ and ‘Ampelos’ means ‘vine’. It is possible that this refers to the exceptionally large roots which the plant forms.

Paulownia - Fowglow tree - Keisaratré - Skrauttré - Garðskálaplanta

Foxglove tree - Paulownia tomentosa - Keisaratré - Fingurbjargarblóms tré - Þetta tré er hraðvaxta og hefur einstaklega stór og falleg laufblöð - fjólublá blómin minna mjög á blóm Fingurbjargarblóms en standa stutt á trénu og falla fljótt af. Tréð þarf mildan vetur og heit sumur til að ná að blómstra. Foxglove Tree (Paulownia tomentosa) One of the few trees with enormous paired leaves (to 35 cm long) which are densely hairy beneath. In spring, it produces long, erect, much-branched, clusters of purplish flowers. These look like huge foxgloves, which are in the same family. This uncommon species originates from China, but was introduced from Japan in 1838. This tree became too large for the space and has been severely pruned. : http://www2.westsussex.gov.uk/leisureandtourism/prow/pdfs/Chichester_Tree_Trail.pdf Paulownia wood is very light, fine-grained, soft, and warp-resistant and is used for chests, boxes, and clogs (geta). The wood is burned to make charcoal for sketching and powder for fireworks, the bark is made into a dye, and the leaves are used in vermicide preparations. The fine grained soft and warp resistant properties also make Paulownia wood exceptionally suited for making wooden surfboards. Tom Wegener (Noosa, Australia) and his brother Jon Wegener (California, USA) are amongst the shapers who pioneered its use. Other shapers like Empress Surfboards and Scud Surfboards (France) are also making surfboards out of Paulownia. Unlike those made from balsa wood, the resulting surfboards do not need to be glassed. More recently, it is used as body material for low-cost electric guitars and as the core for lightweight touring skis. It is often used in guitars as the core body, then finished with another kind of wood, such as the Dean ML XM that is made of paulownia as the body but is finished with mahogany. Paulownia is extremely fast growing; some species of plantation Paulownia can be harvested for saw timber in as little as five years. Once the trees are harvested, they regenerate from their existing root systems, earning them the name of the "Phoenix tree." : http://paulownia.co.uk/ Paulownia tomentosa was introduced to Britain in 1838 and, despite its obvious charms, is not a common sight in British gardens, mainly because frost tends to kill off its flower buds. However, it remains an impressive tree, if only for its leaves which can easily grow to more than 30cm in both length and width. The large surface area of these leaves requires the tree to have good access to both water and light and as a result it will only thrive in moist soil and away from shade. In the wild, this deciduous tree can grow to 15m in height but generally only reaches around half that height in Britain. : http://apps.kew.org/trees/?page_id=128 The genus, originally Pavlovnia but now usually spelled Paulownia, was named in honour of Queen Anna Pavlovna of The Netherlands (1795--1865), daughter of Tsar Paul I of Russia. It is also called "princess tree" for the same reason. : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paulownia The flowers are produced before the leaves in early spring, on panicles 10--30 cm long, with a tubular purple corolla 4--6 cm long resembling a foxglove flower. The fruit is a dry egg-shaped capsule 3--4 cm long, containing numerous tiny seeds. The seeds are winged and disperse by wind and water. Pollarded trees do not produce flowers, as these only form on mature wood. Paulownia tomentosa can survive wildfire because the roots can regenerate new, very fast-growing stems. It is tolerant of pollution and it is not fussy about soil type. For this reason it functions ecologically as a pioneer plant. Its nitrogen-rich leaves provide good fodder and its roots prevent soil erosion. Eventually, Paulownia is succeeded by taller trees that shade it. It cannot thrive in the shade of other trees. : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paulownia_tomentosa

Large Black Slug - Arion ater - Burgundy snail - Roman snail - Svartsniglar - Garðsnigill - .hryggleysingjar - meindýr - garðapest. Up to 150 - 200 mm - Colour ranges from jet black through orange to creamy white - all with an orange fringe. Back is covered with elongated tubercles. No keel. Sticky mucus. Found across Europe to Iceland. darker forms are most common in north England and paler ones are most common in the south. Feeds on dung, plants and carrion - and grass cuttings after rain. Svartsniglar hafa verið landlægir á Íslandi um aldir en þeir félagar Eggert Ólafsson og Bjarni Pálsson gátu hans í ferðabók sinni árið 1772. Svartsnigill hefur fundist víða um land en er algengastur á landinu sunnanverðu, einkum í gróðurríkum brekkum og hlíðum sem vita mót suðri. Hann er að öllu jöfnu svartur á lit, 10--15 cm langur, stundum allt að 20 cm í nágrannalöndunum. Sjá meira: http://fiskholl.blog.is/blog/fiskholl/entry/905972/ The slug covers itself in a thick foul-tasting mucus which serves as both protection against predators as well as a measure to keep moist. It is somewhat difficult to wash off. Like other members of the family Arionidae, the black slug has a pneumostome (breathing hole) on the right side of its mantle through which it breathes. This mantle is the part which in snails secretes a shell, and in this species of slug the mantle contains a resilient protective structure of calcareous granules. See more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_slug Svartsnigill er rakasækinn, finnst t.d. í graslendi nálægt sjó, gróðurríkum grasbrekkum, gjarnan mót suðri, skjólgóðum hraungjótum og húsagörðum. Hann er alæta sem leggst m.a. á hræ, sveppi og gróður, bæði lifandi og rotnandi, en veldur ekki teljandi skaða í garðrækt. Svartsnigill verpir á köldum, rökum stöðum í gróðurþykkni, einnig í safnhauga. Hann þykir ekki eftirsóknarverð fæða fyrir önnur dýr vegna þess að slímið sem hann gefur frá sér virðist síður en svo lystaukandi. Svartsniglar eru þó stundum étnir, m.a. af nagdýrum og fuglum. Sjá meira: http://www.ni.is/poddur/nattura/poddur/nr/1155 The Black Slug prefers a diet of rotting vegetation, fungi, manure, and even the odd decomposing dead animal. Only during springtime when these aren't so abundant, and tender young seedlings are, does it cause most damage in the garden. So remember the old saying: If it's black, put it back. If it's grey, keep it at bay. http://www.slugoff.co.uk/slug-facts/bad-slugs

Eitruð planta - Skrautplanta - Gróðurhúsaplanta. Blómin eru fallegir hvítirgrænir eða bleikir kólfar með engin krónublöð. Barnshafandi konur ættu aldrei að neyta af þessari plöntu því hún getur valdið fæðingargöllum. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should never consume phytolacca berries or other parts of the plant. Phytolacca is a uterine stimulant, according to the ACS, and can cause miscarriage or premature labor. Additionally, toxic components of the berries can have negative effects on a developing baby. The genus comprises about 25 species of perennial herbs, shrubs, and trees growing from 1 to 25 m tall. They have alternate simple leaves, pointed at the end, with entire or crinkled margins; the leaves can be either deciduous or evergreen. The stems are green, pink or red. The flowers are greenish-white to pink, produced in long racemes at the ends of the stems. They develop into globose berries 4--12 mm diameter, green at first, ripening dark purple to black. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pokeweed Poke root is contraindicated in pregnancy due to its potential toxicity. Mid-term abortifacient activity has been reported for the seeds (10 mg/kg), roots (20 mg/kg) and leaves (40 mg/kg) of P. acinosa (a species used in traditional Chinese medicine) after intraperitoneal administration to pregnant mice.

It has red stems and large leaves that are tinged purple in autumn. From mid-summer it produces spikes of white to pink flowers which later develop into dark maroon berries. Becareful with this plant as the berries are highly toxic if swallowed and the sap can be an irritant. http://www.gardenersworld.com/plants/phytolacca-americana/1662.html The plant is generally poisonous so this, and all other uses of this plant are not recommended without the guidance of a seasoned expert. This plant contains chemicals called the "pokeweed mitogens" that are being studied for use in treatments of autoimmune diseases including AIDS and rheumatoid arthritis. Mitogens are substances that promote cell division and may activate mitosis in animal cells that normally would not divide. Some lectins, e.g. those in pokeweed mitogens, can activate mitosis in white blood cells; it is this property that is of interest to AIDS researchers. Pokeweed is also being studied as an agent to combat fungal infections. The berries of the Indian pokeberry have been used for dye production. http://park.org/Pavilions/FoodAndMarkets/Herbs/qr_425.htm Burning of mouth and throat, salivation, severe stomach irritation, vomiting, bloody diarrhea, spasms, convulsions; can be fatal. http://www.ces.ncsu.edu/depts/hort/consumer/poison/Phytoam.htm Þrátt fyrir að ung laufblöð séu lítið eitruð svona ný þá eygst eiturmagnið jafnt og þétt eftir því sem plantan eldist. Kjötmikil rót plöntunar, laufblöð og sérstaklega óþroskuð ber og fræ eru eitruð við inntöku.

This seed germinates slowly over a period of 2 months at room temperature. Sow 2-3 times as much as you need. You can also try soaking the seed in the fridge for 2 weeks. Change cold water for fresh daily - some say distilled works better. It likes rich soil and full sun or partial shade, and is good in open woodland. It thrives on hot summers. This perennial can grow 10 feet high, and the stems turn a striking red as the plant matures. http://www.alchemy-works.com/phytolacca_americana.html Pokeweed's root and leaves are the most toxic, but even the berries of the plant have caused vomiting, spasms, and even death in humans. It can also be a problem in pastures where it is toxic to cattle, sheep, turkeys, swine, and horses. However, birds are immune to the poisons in the plant and are a major factor in the plants dispersal. http://www.emswcd.org/weeds/weeds-toknow/131-pokeweed-phytolacca-americana- Pokeweed, though, is not without its charms. It is a native plant, so that gives it a right to stake its claim. Its long panicles of white flowers are attractive and even smell mildly sweet— and I'm a sucker for scented flowers. Songbirds love the deep purple berries whose juice was used as ink during the Civil War. http://www.playingwithfireandwater.com/foodplay/2012/05/pokeweed.html The following list of herbs to avoid or use with caution during pregnancy.

Ceanothus - California Lilac  and Red bottom Bumblebee -  Hunangsfluga - Skordýr -  Skrautrunni

Ceanothus thyrsiflorus - Italian Skies - California Lilac. Blue Flowers. Evergreen Shrub - Mostly hardy in the UK, but can be damaged by frost and wind in exposed situations. See more: http://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=354 The Californian species are sometimes known as California lilac, but species found elsewhere have other common names, such as New Jersey tea for C. americanus (as its leaves were used as a black tea substitute during colonial times). See more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ceanothus Bombus lapidaries - Red tailed bumblebee - is probably the most easily recognised species with its black body and bright orange tail. Although its body is as long as that of B. terrestris it is not as heavily built. The workers have the same colouring as the queen, but they are much smaller; some of the early workers are no bigger than house flies. The males (below and above left) have similar colouring, but with more yellow hair. These bees prefer to nest underground and the base of dry stone dykes and walls are popular locations. The size of the nest can vary considerably from over 200 bees to less than 100. They have comparatively short tongues (see the photograph below showing a male extending his tongue) and prefer flowers that form a distinct landing platform, such as daisies, dandelions and thistles. The heads of these flowers are made up of many small florets each containing only a small quantity of nectar. While on these flowers the bees probe many times and walk around the flower rather than fly. So the bees are going for a low yield of nectar per probe, but minimum time and energy between probes. See more: http://www.bumblebee.org/lap.htm Early bumblebee - Bombus pratorum - Queens, workers and males have a yellow band on the thorax and abdomen. The abdominal yellow banding is less pronounced or missing in workers. The tail is often dark orange-red, and may fade with time. Because the colour on the tail is restricted to the final segment, it can be difficult to see while the bee is moving. Early bumblebees are a particularly small species and the workers are markedly smaller than other foraging worker species appearing in the springtime. Males have a broad yellow collar that wraps around the thorax, and yellow hair on the face.

Himalaya balsam - Impatiens glandulifera - .Balsamine - Springkraut - Seeds - Aldinskellur - Fræbelgir - fræin skjótast í allar áttir - Lokkar að sér býflugur og bjöllur. Himalayan balsam - Impatiens glandulifera - is a relative of the busy Lizzie, but reaches well over head height, and is a major weed problem, especially on riverbanks and waste land, but can also invade gardens. It grows rapidly and spreads quickly, smothering other vegetation as it goes. : http://apps.rhs.org.uk/advicesearch/profile.aspx?pid=480 Himalayan Balsam frá Himalaya hefur verið nefnd Kiss-me-in-the-mountains og Jumping Jack á Ensku. Hún er ein af fáum plöntum í þessari ætt sem eru ekki eingöngu með blómasafa í blómunum heldur finnst hann einnig í stórum kirtlum á laufgreinunum. Hún þarf rakan jarðveg til að dafna og er helst að finna meðfram vatnsbökkum, lækjujm og tjörnum. Hún var send til Englands frá Grasagarðinum í Calcutta árið 1839 og var fyrst ræktuð í gróðurhúsum sem viðkvæmur dýrgripur. Árið 1855 fannst Himalayan Balsam fyrst villt í náttúrunni sem var smá viðvörun um það sem koma skal. Hundrað árum seinna var hana að finna sjálfsána á bökkum skipaskurða og lækja mörgum til mikilla ama. Þessi fallega planta gerir ekki mikinn skaða annan en vera fyrirferðamikil og er fremur náttúruvæn planta sem hefur það varnarkerfi að laða að sér maura til að vernda þær fyrir ágangi annara skordýra. Rauðir þykkir beinvaxnir stönglarnir geta orðið 2. m á hæð með dökkgrænum ávölum örlítið tenntum laufblöðum. Sterk ilmandi blómin sem eru hvít, ljósbleik eða rósrauð, springa út snemma sumars og eru oft kölluð Policeman´s helmet í Englandi vegna kúptar lögunnar sinnar með langa slútandi vör sem myndar einskonar lendingarpall fyrir skordýrin. Blómin eru nægjanlega stór og djúp svo Hunangsflugur - Bombus - hverfa inn í þau. Ílangir fræbelgirnir hafa að geyma nokkur brún fræ sem spítast af krafti nokkra metra frá plöntunni þegar fræbelgirnir eru snertir eða fullþroskaðir. Þrátt fyrir að fræin lifa ekki mörg ár í jarðvegi þá sáir plantan hratt þar sem hún vex og er mjög hraðvaxta. Introduced to the UK in 1839, Himalayan balsam is now a naturalised plant, found especially on riverbanks and in waste places where it has become a problem weed. Himalayan balsam tolerates low light levels and also shades out other vegetation, so gradually impoverishing habitats by killing off other plants. It is sometimes seen in gardens, either uninvited or grown deliberately, but care must be taken to ensure that it does not escape into the wild.

Solent Life Magazine January 2013 - After starting classical piano at the age of 7 and progressing to the guitar Rob began a career in the 80’s as a recording engineer at Bermuda Sound Studios. This led to him engineering on Keith Richards album 'Talk is Cheap' produced by Steve Jordan as well as getting some blues guitar education from Keith himself. In '90 Rob moved on to work in some of London top studios, including Metropolis Studios and Swanyard Studios, from there he worked alongside some of the best artists, producers and engineers in London, including, Gary Langan (Queen, Yes), Alan Moulder (Nine Inch Nails, Arctic Monkeys), Manu Dibango, Bernie Sumner(New Order), Johnny Marr(Smiths) and Andy Farris ( INXS) just to name a few. After some time, the manic long hours took their toll and Rob really wanted to be a blues player not a tech. With his contacts in the studio business he began to do session work on guitar for the likes of Tom Robinson, Chris White from Dire Straits, and many other artists. In 1994 Rob worked at Earls Court as a guitar demonstrator for JHS, the distributors for Hughes & Kettner amps, Jackson and Encore Guitars. He went on to develop a busy schedule of regular gigs in London and the South East. Soon after this he headed back out to Bermuda for a summer gig in the tourist resorts and Pubs, this was fun, he got to jam with some of New Yorks finest blues players, Poppa Chubby and Big Ed & the Side Pockets at the Oasis Club. With frequent trips to Florida & Manhattan, this was just too much fun and the holiday gig turned into a 13 year stay. For family reasons Rob eventually returned to the UK in 2007. Since returning he has put his studio experiences to good use and has completed six albums, and over the last 5 years he has sold close to 15,000 copies from gigs and street performances with many fans coming back, looking for more.

Cowdray cows - Cowdray Ruins - Cowdray Castle Cowdray is in Easebourne, a West Sussex parish which adjoins the small town and former parliamentary borough of Midhurst, some ten miles north of Chichester. The ruins of Cowdray House, burned out in 1793, stand in fact only 600 yards from the centre of Midhurst, with the river Rother, the parish boundary, flowing between them. The present house, Cowdray Park, built by the 7th Earl of Egmont, c. 1875, is about ¾ mile further eastward, 500 yards south of the Midhurst-Petworth road. See more: http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/a2a/records.aspx?cat=182-cowdray_2-1&cid=-1#-1 Cowdray is a Historic Tudor House set in Midhurst, West Sussex. Cowdray is one of England's most important early Tudor houses. This visitor attraction, visited by Queen Elizabeth I and King Henry VIII, was partially destroyed by fire in 1793. Its magnificent ruins are set in the stunning landscape of Cowdray Park, in the heart of the South Downs National Park. Cowdray plays host to special events throughout the season, including outdoor theatre and period re-enactments. The Cowdray audio tour is recommended for visitors and we also have a popular special children's version of the audio tour. http://www.cowdray.org.uk/ Cowdray Castle: http://www.violetdesigns.co.uk/cowdray_castle_ruins.htm The Walled Garden: http://www.walledgardencowdray.com/pages/walled_garden.asp The original fortified manor house was built in 1284 by Sir John Bohun across the river from the town of Midhurst. He named it Coudreye, the Norman word for the nearby hazel woods. In 1592 the 1st Viscounts grandson Anthony-Maria Browne inherited Cowdray. During his ownership of Cowdray, Guy Fawkes was briefly employed as a footman and the 2nd Viscount was briefly imprisoned for complicity in the Gunpowder plot after staying away from Parliament on 5 November 1605 following a warning. During the English Civil War two thirds of the Cowdray estate were sequestered and the house was garrisoned by Parliamentary forces. There are marks on the walls of the main courtyard of the house thought to be from musketballs fired by soldiers during this time. On 24 September 1793, during restoration work, a fire started in the carpenters' work shop in the North Gallery where some smouldering charcoal was allowed to fall upon the sawdust and woodshavings strewn across the floor. During the restoration work the family's furniture and treasures had also been stored in the North Gallery to make re-decorating easier. From the collection only three paintings and a few small pieces of furniture were saved, the rest including artefacts from Battle Abbey being devoured by flames. During the early 19th century the house was left to ruin, it was quickly colonised by plants, most notably of ivy which hastened its decay. Small alterations were made to the surviving Kitchen Tower such as a floor being put in above the kitchens, however it was not inhabited. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cowdray_House http://www.cowdray.org.uk/cowdrayhistory.html Kastalinn Cowdray í West Sussex, England

Sjá miera: http://is.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hunangsflugur A bumblebee is any member of the bee genus Bombus, in the family Apidae. There are over 250 known species, Bumblebees are social insects that are characterised by black and yellow body hairs, often in bands. However, some species have orange or red on their bodies, or may be entirely black. According to 20th century folklore, the laws of aerodynamics prove that the bumblebee should be incapable of flight, as it does not have the capacity - in terms of wing size or beats per second - to achieve flight with the degree of wing loading necessary. The origin of this claim has been difficult to pin down with any certainty. John McMasters recounted an anecdote about an unnamed Swiss aerodynamicist at a dinner party who performed some rough calculations and concluded, presumably in jest, that according to the equations, bumblebees cannot fly. In later years McMasters has backed away from this origin, suggesting that there could be multiple sources, and that the earliest he has found was a reference in the 1934 book Le vol des insectes by French entomologist Antoine Magnan (1881--1938); they had applied the equations of air resistance to insects and found that their flight was impossible, but that "One shouldn't be surprised that the results of the calculations don't square with reality".

It follows several reports of cars ignoring school crossing patrol staff – affectionately known as 'lollipop' men or women. A distinctive new advert is appearing on the backs of more than 70 county- council owned vehicles, reminding drivers it is an offence not to stop when a school crossing patrol officer is holding out a pole to bring traffic to a halt.

En ástæðan fyrir veru gangbrautarvarðarins var þó ærin því umferðarnefnd Seltjarnarnesbæjar efnir í samstarfi við ýmsa aðila til umferðarviku meðal skólabarna dagana 30. apríl til 5. maí. Jóhanna Runólfsdóttir er í slysavarnardeild kvenna og stóð vaktina í gærmorgun skammt frá Valhúsaskóla.

Ég er því hér til að sýna nemendum Mýrarhúsaskóla hvar best er að fara yfir götuna." ....."Hún er þarna til að hjálpa krökkunum að fara yfir götuna af því að sumir eiga það til að gleyma sér og labba yfir án þess að líta til hliðar og þá gætu þeir lent fyrir bíl."
