Thought for the day….” Life is not measure by the number of breaths we take, but by the moment that take our breath away”
“Failures are stepping stones to success”
Amazing to realize that plants have the ability to count, and also have a memory. David Attenborough showed in his series ‘The Secret Life Of Plants’ that the Venus Fly Trap plant (a carnivorous plant) actually had the ability to count and some form of memory. This week I read of more studies which have shown that plants have the ability to do mathematics as well, as scientists have shown that plants have been working out how much starch to consume overnight (when there is no sunlight available) so as not to use up all their reserves too fast. Scientists say that this shows that plants have the ability to perform simple mathematics. There is even a laboratory in Italy investigating plant intelligence, LINV near Florence (International Laboratory of Plant Neurobiology). One of their studies was into the effects of music in vineyards.
Another Moroccan photo today, but this time a portrait of a woman in a market in the seaside town of Essouraira. Arabs and Berbers make up most of the population in Morocco. Surprisingly, the lowest point in Morocco (Sebkha Tah) is -55m and the highest (Jbel Toubkal) 4165m. Around 45% of the population work in agriculture.
