    This is the Wig Vase designed by Tania da Cruz. It's a hollow, head-shaped vase that sits atop a smaller water vase that you can put flowers in to create your own floral hairstyle. Pretty clever. Unfortunately the vases cost around $315, which is pretty shocking considering ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber Peter Brown using a lathe to carve a flower vase out of a brick he made from 256 melted crayons. Pretty clever idea considering the vase will be waterproof and all. And who doesn't love the smell of flowers AND crayons? Sure markers smell way bett... / Continue →

    These are the beautiful pressed flower phone cases made by Etsy shop HouseOfBlings. They cost $17-$20 depending on the make of your phone. Some are just decoratively arranged pressed flowers, but I really like the ones that were made to look like little trees. I like little ... / Continue →

    This is the first flower grown in space (previously: lettuce). It's a zinnia. Are the petals curled because it was grown in low gravity? Beats me. Maybe it's just a runt. Now I want a space bouquet for Valentine's Day or it will be ruined and I'll throw a tantrum at the r... / Continue →

    This is an absolutely beautiful timelapse video created by David de los Santos Gil of a bunch of different flowers blooming. It really is worth a watch. I had almost forgotten just how beautiful the world can be. I blame mainstream media for that. The only news I read anymo... / Continue →

    These are several photos of a smoldering rose bouquet that's been covered in ash. It looks like a scene straight out of God Of War. It's not though, it's a real picture. I don't know, something to do with dreams or something. A quote that reads like a way-too-long motivatio... / Continue →

    Flower Shells are shotgun shells loaded with flower seeds instead of birdshot/buckshot (previously: game-bird seasoning shells). The idea is that instead of taking life from the world, you'll be giving life BACK. Unless you shoot an animal, then it's a wash. The shells will ... / Continue →

    Allegedly the orchid mantis is the first known species of predator to lure prey pretending to be a flower (not hiding in the flower like some spiders do). Apparently they're so convincing they're more likely to be visited by insects than actual flowers. That's something you m... / Continue →

    This is a gallery of tiny 'nanoflowers' grown on the surface of pennies and glass by engineers at Harvard University. They're not actually flowers though, they just look like them. In reality they're microscopic bits of carefully grown crystals. "Like meth." Exactly like me... / Continue →

    This is a shot of a flower from Psychotria elata, a small understory tree in tropical forests whose flowers are affectionately known as hooker's lips. Get it? Because they look like bright red lipsticked lips. Just think -- now you can plant a seed and grow your own girlfrie... / Continue →

    This is a small gallery of Monkey Orchids (Dracula simia, vampire monkey -- like those creepy f***ers from The Wizard of Oz). They're found in the highest rainforests of Ecuador and Peru and uncannily resemble little monkey faces. Why? Presumably (and this is just a personal... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like an artist's rendering instead of an actual photo, two stems of Sylene stenophylla bloom after the seeds laid dormant in an ice age squirrel's burrow for some 30,000 years. That...is a long time. Way longer than any of my seeds have stayed v... / Continue →

    'April Showers' and 'The Gardner' are two $9.50 comics that you can plant and grow into a garden provided you take care of them and your dog doesn't Golden Shower them when they're seedlings. They're not actual full-length comics though, just two pages. Still, clever idea. A... / Continue →

    Looks like vaginas to me. Happy Valentine's Day, I hope you're all having a good great one. And, if it's any consolation to you singles, I love you. Granted not like that, but still. Consider this your card. For those of you who do have a special someone but forgot to get ... / Continue →
