Botanical Wednesday: Rootless

In my youthful days working as a nurseryman, I spent many hours scraping the liverworts out of plant pots — these things were everywhere and impossible to purge.

    I ♥ liverworts.
    They are everwhere in the Arctic.

    Better than liverwurst, I guess.

    Actually I’m half surprised you haven’t posted about the season finale of “Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman” where they ask the question “Did God create evolution”.

    **spoiler alert**
    They did have a creationist who used the “irreducible complexity” argument in the beginning. But so far the rest of the segments support how evolution could be completely natural sans a cosmic boogie man.

    They’re sprouting up on the back patio, but I rather like the look of them. They’re not going to eat up the whole house, are they?

    Mmmm… Liverworts on pumpernickel rye with chopped red onion and course grained mustard. Oh, wait…

    They look like alien seaweeds. Or sea squirts. Or cacti.
