Throwback Thursday: may beetle

In the past, I stressed the enormous decrease in insects and birds several times. And I’m willing to do it again every now and then, simply to remind you, you’re also responsible to take action against this.

How can you do so? Avoid biocides, pesticides, herbicides, and insecticides. Support areas, where local plants are blooming. Don’t call the herbs pest plants. Establish an area in your garden with blooming plants, by spaying seeds to feed bees and other insects. Set up so-called insect hotels. These are special places, where insects can find hides and places to grow their offspring. As a result, many bird species will find food.

It’s not only for the birds. It’s also for our own food. Without insects, many of our food-plants won’t exist. Plants keep the fertile soil in place. They also keep the water in place. Without plants, the wind will erode the soil. Our own future depends on the availability of water and food. Lack of water and food (and work) in certain regions brings people to migrate to other countries. So, if you don’t want more people coming to your country, help them having enough (work), food and water in their own region. Therefore fight against climatic changes. Help, reducing pollution and global warming.

Take care!

Gargoyles II

Here are the promised gargoyles I found at Notre Dame de Paris.

There are certainly much more and even quite different ones on top of the cathedral. Unfortunately I wasn’t on top of the cathedral, but I definitely want to go to when in Paris for the next time.

Over the time the gargoyles were attacked by the rain water and so some of the decorations got victims of erosion ( I mentioned in my previos post, that they were attached to prevent the stone from being eroded by the rain water, as you can see easyly on the attached photos). But over the last 150 years, when Continue reading “Gargoyles II”
