nice collection, TFS Ori
Address to the Barley Seed
When the Lord first planted oot the earth wi' trees an' flo'ers an' weeds,
He scattered roon' Speyside a puckle barley seeds;
Thus was the birth o' Scotia's brew on that fair springtime morn,
For in the month that followed, John Barleycorn was born.
The threshin' plant had scarce made off, the golden grain was cairted,
Syne bags for siller were exchanged an' industry was started.
O barley seed, had ye but known the fate that lay before ye,
The very day in which ye breared ye'd ha'e telt die earth tae smo'er ye.
Your very unique photo is one of a kind. It teaches through art, photography and especially notes which you have done well here and VERY well in describing your travels through your young life. How exciting. I wish you the best, such as this image..on TN
Good morning Amelia,
I like the arrangement of these limpet shells, their ventral aspects showing a nice display of varying natural colours in an attractive pattern against the broken shell BG.
It is interesting to speculate why these shells vary so much in colour.
When alive on their rocky habitat they all seem to share the same rather drab colours when their dorsal aspects are seen.
Does the variation of the shells depend on the individual, how long they have been dead, sex, or what? I don't know, perhaps someone does
Thanks for this attractive and interesting contribution to TN accompanied by an excellent note.
Have a good weekend,

This is really an eye catching post. I found your notes most interesting since I am not familiar with Limpets. The arrangement and colors are just beautiful. You have captured them so nicely with fine details of each one.

I have not seen you around the site for a very long time and is just wondering what the reason could be. I miss your presence on the site.
So simple and basic, yet so beautiful and striking. a great combination shells in different colours, shapes and sizes all together in one. Composition is great, just as the clarity and detail. Thanks for sharing. Hope to see you back soon. Best regards.
