THE focus on architecture: materials, shapes, proportions, scale and proportion, style, aesthetics, functionality,  symmetry and use of space leaves one with just one, composition as the essence. Most of it consists of straight lines, curves or a mix.

For the above reasons, I detest anything about pyramids, temples, religion enjoying those from Peru, India, China, Japan and Thailand. 

At any rate, when I observe structures with average or exceptional architectural beauty, abandoned for decades, I wonder what the hell happened to the owners? Their relatives? How can anyone leave millions of dollars thrown to waste?  After all, one could donate, barter, sell or rent a property instead of having it ripped off any metal of value.  I will present a series on this theme soon in flickr.

Gardening wise, the relation  between these abandoned properties and our environment is pretty clear with sugar on top. If any person can pay no mind to valuable real estate, with every segment of society navigating in similar waters of indifference, then environmental destruction will encounter the same reaction, who cares? Is not there, not noticed, a natural part of life.

With these words of wisdom
your humble servant
moves to a few medicinal plants in the collection.

Aloe vera
Nice as a refreshment drink. Good for skin fungus,
infections, fights arthritis, helps digestion. 
Useful for acne constipation, herpes, hemorrhoids,
plus ten or more
Urena lobata
Capsicum frutenses
Datura stramonium
Cosmos sulphureus
Turnera subulata
Zinziber officinalis

 The above, belong to this group. There are some more,
m but you got the drift by now. If interested, go to research: name + medicinal uses.  You will be surprised to find those in your own collection that are used to cure this or that.
