A SPECIAL CLASS TODAY REVEALING THE MYSTERY OF PLANT LIFE ON EARTH!
Beauty is always in the eye of the beholder and the beholder is always Human.
(with the exception of Aliens and others we can not see, as we do not know how they percieve beauty anyway.)
Human--I am hoping to accent what we in this class have in common--that we are all humans joined in the same species family sharing this Earth Together. If you are here, you are Human, as we are the only ones on Earth that can read! (that I know of). We are of the Animal Kingdom
Today our Photostudy will be on The Plant Kingdom: Mystery of Plant Life Revealed in Photos from Kates Cabin On Rainbow Creek, A Bird Sanctuary in Texas by: me-brendasue
Let's go up to the Roof to begin our Class.
It looks like they see yet another Alien. (We have alot of those around here). Hey, Somebody start this Class!
These trees looked like dead sticks a couple of weeks ago. Slowly, little buds began to line the sticks and grew to fat buds that now have popped into pretty pink flowers everywhere!
For this flower to make a peach,one grain of pollen has to be placed on top of the pistol and find its way inside to the base of the flower. This process is called pollination. The bees (and others) are responsible for putting that grain of pollen on top of that pistol simply by brushing against it as they walk around. If the flower is not pollinated, it withers and dies. If it is pollinated, a peach begins to grow.
Peach Trees can only be cross pollinated. That means the pollen on the anthers of one flower will not be accepted in the pistol on the same flower. The pollen grains must come from a different flower on the same tree or a different (peach) tree. These grains are carried on the bodies of bees, for example, and are brushed off on different flowers as they make their way from flower to flower.
It seems to us this happens purely by chance. I believe this happens by purpose and design.
