Tulipa ‘Captain Fryatt’ with viral streaking. Cambridge University Botanic Garden has just received an award from Plant Heritage for the micropropagation of clean stock of this tulip, which has been infected with a virus that causes the streaked colouration seen in this photograph. ‘Captain Fryatt’ has not even been listed in the RHS Plant Finder since 1999, and is therefore considered very rare indeed.

The mayor of Mississauga, Canada is a badass. via

Hazel McCallion, everbody.

92 years old,

34 years in office,

$0 in debt

$700 million in reserve

Eight prime ministers

One truck.

But women aren’t strong leaders… OH WAIT.

Now I’m sure somebody’s gonna tell me something but

  • supports a Palestinian state
  • supports Aids CHarities
  • told her city well if we cant get money y’all need to pay taxes and maintains a 76 approval rating
  • nick named Hurricane Hazel
  • and is so boss lady that she don’t run she’ tells  folks to give that money to charity

I will always reblog this lady.

This woman is officially my new hero.

In regards to the flooding in the GTA yesterday, she apparently said that she hasn’t seen rain like that since her neighbour Noah was building a boat.

New hero in life.
