✨ P R E M I E R ✨ _ A rank that I always wanted to hit but never really knew how or when it would happen. _ Network marketing is something that takes a lot of time and patience. Unfortunately, the results are not always instant and it can become rather difficult to not get discouraged. _ Premier feels like I am getting there. Like I am doing it. Like I can push harder. Like I can actually make this “little business” work. Hitting Premier was a sign to keep going. To not give up no matter how difficult this make feel or how discouraged I may get. Premier felt pretty damn good 😜. _ A huge thank you to my entire team and my incredible leaders for helping me get there. You guys are my inspiration. 📷 @themountainhoney
🌼❤️🌷 #repost @britishmuseum ・・・ Maria Sibylla Merian was a trailblazing artist and naturalist who produced stunningly detailed paintings and drawings of flora and fauna in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. She travelled to Surinam in South America in 1699 to record what she saw in beautiful pages like this showing the life cycle of two moths. They’re Giant silk moths (Arsenura armida) which live from Mexico to southern Brazil – the larvae shown here are of a different species. Collector and physician Sir Hans Sloane collected a huge body of Merian’s work and it became part of the original collection of the British Museum upon his death in 1753. You can see examples of Merian’s work in the Enlightenment Gallery (Room 1). #mariasibyllamerian#mariamerian#art#science#naturalist#watercolour#drawing#silkmoth#britishmuseum#london#hanssloane#sloane
There’s something special about the San Diego sunflower (Bahiopsis laciniata), despite (or because of?) it’s simplicity. It’s shrubby, hairy, and has crinkled up resinous leaves, and I think it’s lovely. You’ve gotta respect the drought adapted plants that thrive in San Diego.
