Garden and Flower Pictures

  • Quality of photography
  • Not Educational
I think that I shall never see, so many stunning yellow daisies. From roses to zinnias and tulips too, this site has every color, every hue. Bad rhymes are made by fools like me, whene’er I see the purple pansies. OK, perhaps you’ve picked up the scent here that this site is largely a collection of photos of beautiful flowers (over 2,000) and they are arranged by flower type. The quality of the photography is excellent and the range of plants and even garden creatures (bees, hummingbirds, frogs, beetles, etc.) covered at the site is impressive. Images are free for the taking so long as the credit line is kept on the image. Screensavers are also available. A simple idea in full bloom.

Scientifically Studying Ecstasy

MDMA (commonly known as the empathogen “ecstasy”) is classified as a Schedule 1 drug, which is reserved for compounds with no accepted medical use and a high abuse potential. Two researchers from Stanford, however, call for a rigorous scientific exploration of MDMA's effects to identify precisely how the drug works, the data from which could be used to develop therapeutic compounds.

Do you agree that ecstasy should be studied for its potential therapeutic benefits?
