We appreciate your posts and the following ones are randomly selected because of their botanical qualities. They are manually curated on behalf of the Amazing Nature Community.

First a brief explanation about Botany:

Botany is a broad term covering scientific study of plants. It could be from a small living organism to a tree. Included would be flora, fungi, lichens, trees and flowering plants.

We are also interested in plants for their psychological (good for the mind & soul) benefits.

Through botany, medicinal properties are discovered from nature. Food, medicines, parks, forests, pollution and much more have been improved with botanical knowledge. Botanists search for alternatives from the harmful chemicals used on crops and the deforestation that has damaged the health of our planet.

Herbalism, with ancient people identifying edible, medicinal or poisonous plants, is the original of Botany. Our ancestors and Native peoples were botanists in their own right. They knew of the healing properties to be found in plants but much of that knowledge had been lost to future generations.


Now I would like to bring your attention to the curated posts and ask you to show some love to the amazing authors:


  • @soulsdetour explains her theory of why some flowers ae located close to the ground and others are high above our heads. You will have to read her post to find the answer.

  • @raizayanez checks the palm tree from root to leaves while waiting in a long lineup for a Covid-19 vaccination. Looking around, nature, in all it’s many expressions, was the first focus of attention.

  • @alexaivytorres examines a cactus known as Mickey Ears. These species have adapted and responded to the selective pressures that geological time has put them through.
