Root Systems of Prairie Plants
Prairies are often called “the upside-down forest” since the majority of the biomass (the plant parts) of the system is underground (up to 70%). Compass plant and blazing star, stars of the prairie screen, noted in this line drawing of roots, reach 15 feet deep. The different morphology of the root systems works in harmony, with each plant taking advantage of a soil niche, mingling and “shaking hands” with all of the other plants in the soil, as they do above the soil.

Jean paul Goude  photographed Jones in a variety of positions, using boxes to help prop up her body. These images were then pieced together to create a collage which served as the cover for her 1989 album. Or as they say today  ”I’ll fix it in post”

Why is this done in ink? What are these people doing? What are these paintings? Where is this place? What makes Lemony Snicket’s books so good? Why do you care? Why are you asking these questions? These are the wrong questions #ATWQfanart Thank you Lemony Snicket for everything. You inspired me to read and now, in 8th grade, I have read so many good books and have gotten as many people as I could to read your books. I love the way you write, and I hope one day to publish a book as well. I first want to be on the Supreme a court though:) thank you for inspiring my big dreams and showing me that some mystery and thinking outside of the box will take you a long way.
