Mimosa Pale, an artist from Finland, invites her fellow citizens to climb into her vagina-themed bike taxi. Her intention is to protest the world’s fascination with phallic objects and draw attention to the cunt instead. So three times a week she hits the streets of Helsinki.
This is a wild orchid my boyfriend and I found when we were camping in Anastasia State Park this weekend! It’s called Hexalectris spicata, or the Crested Coral Root. We thought it was some kind of parasite because there’s nothing green on the visible part of the plant. It’s true- Hexalectris gets its nutrients by forming a symbiotic relationship with microrhizal fungi, creating a coral-shaped network of roots underground that connect to and parasitise those of other nearby plants. Plus it is an endangered species in Florida, so it was a pretty lucky find!
