Hi Everybody… and Goodmorning / -afternoon / – night
ABC-Wednesday has bloomed for 625 times… almost incredible to believe isn’t it? 25-B is the 626th letter we fill in today.
625 times so many different entries… what a spectacular way to bloom!
So for 25-B I’ve chosen the theme “bloom” and I present to you a plant that does that in an also spectacular way. (I presume you see the shape of the letter b in it although it is not in the capital form)
In Dutch it is called De Duitse Pijp.
If you translate that most liturally it sais: The German Pipe.
But… the Latin name is: Aristolochia and if you want to more about it, click here
Looking forward to your entries for 25-B, I greet you and say:
Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-wednes-day / – week!

…Hi Everybody… and Goodmorning / -afternoon / – night
A creature that gives lots of people the creeps I guess… not me though, I find them very interesting.
In my hometown zoo we have quit an extensive number of them… 24 to be exact, all males because there are lots of them and they want to prevent growth of that numbers for a while.
Generallt speaking one could say that there are 2 kinds…
one kind is mostly a herbivor and eats meat etc and is quit small in size
the other one is much larger in size and does not eat any meat at all, just fruit and vegetables.
The little ones… we in The Netherlands call “vleermuizen” (English = Bat)
The large ones… we in The Netherlands call “vleerhonden” (English = Flying Fox)
As we don’t have the little ones and as they are related to the big ones, I thought it would not be a big problem that the English name for this creature does not start with a B… It looks exactly like a Bat, only much larger.
I’ve tried to catch them in flight, that prooved to be very difficult but his photo is acceptable to show you, isn’t it?
