    ~ Indian Pipes ~ ((Monotropa uniflora)

    Most interesting plants that lack the chlorophyl and green pigmentation associated with plants that perform photosynthesis. Indian pipes are specially adapted to pirate nutrients from other plants and organic materials found in the detritus of the forest floor. Indian pipes are able to exist in the low light conditions that would not be inhabitable by plants dependent on photosynthesis.

    A most special whiskey we sampled on St. Paddy's Day this year. Brought to our home by dinner guests, t'is a very rare spirit he purchased back in Ireland. T'was purely delightful. The whistle is a Fred Rose in the key o' D soprano and crafted in African Blackwood with silver ferrules and fipple.

    A friend has the most unusual St Patrick's ritual. Every year he dons his kilt and hides a bottle of Guinness on the property of all his very close friends and family. He calls himself the " Guinness Bunny ". His afternoon is then spent watching " The Quiet Man ". He has been doing this for a long time.
