Summer Seed Plantinbg Experiment: Perennial flowers. 7.14.18
I have no idea what a Velociraptors is, although I was a participant in a dig that obtained a dinosaur/bird specimen, Archaeopteryx, for a museum in Central Texas. This word is new to me. There are so many different myths easily available, it is difficult to sort out the facts from fiction.
It seems the Veloci+raptor, modern Latin velox, “quick”)+ rapto, “thief,” was just above the knee of a modern human. Depictions of it are horrifying.
In reality, Velociraptor looks like a modern bird to me. It measured 6-feet long and about 2 feet high at the hip.
I found all the information on these three dinosaurs in Wikipedia and the Latin dictionary. The inquiries reflect my questions and perhaps you had questions as well.
What have I forgotten about Triceratops? Oh! Yes, this was also a gigantic beast compared to modern humans. It ate only plants, yet I imagine it was a massive, frightening beast to other animals. It lived about 68 million years ago. It was similar to the modern rhinoceros.
Tyrannosaurus rex, a genus of the coelurosaurian theropod dinosaur, lived during the of the upper Cretaceous Period, from 68 to 66 million years ago. It died out in the Cretacious Paleogene extinction events.
Compared to modern humans, it was quite a beast. I think of it and Sigourney Weaver in, OH! what was that movie?
Geologic Time Line
Our spring was so cold and wet, all my seeds molded in the ground, even of the greenhouse. I started a few plants after that in a seeding box under a grow light. That seems to work better. I still don't have them in the garden because of lack of energy, not lack of desire. I enjoy my naps!
Your garden looks healthy and full of promise for delicious eating.
I am still learning how to grow in a greenhouse. I discovered all the wrong ways to design and care for plants last year; this year, I did a little better. I still do not have the energy for the raised beds in the meadow. Perhaps, next year I will plan and implement my ideas for the far northern climate better.
I wish I had Patricia and Rick to guide me along the way.
We spent the afternoon there, & they have a restaurant too, so being in the middle of nowhere, it was great to have a place to eat, & have a coffee.
Yes, I've read about the gingko, but not much about the monkey tree.
Patricia, I would love to go to a fossil museum. One of these days..
In my garden, I also have a number of ginkgo trees, which were also known from their fossil history, before they were known in person, and which were also found in China. I tried growing Monkey Puzzle tree, which is also a living fossil, but it died. So I'm happy with what I'm growing.
That's beautiful, Daniel. Good to know some of its history too.
We visted Drumheller Alberta, & the dinosaur museum there....the Royal Tyrrell Museum. Amazing feeling to hold 65 million year old bones in our hands.
The dawn redwood photo didn't load. Trying again.
Dawn Redwoods were discovered in 1948 in Modaoxi, Hubei, China. Before that, they were known from fossils from the Cretaceous to Miocene eras. There were Tyrannosaurus rex, Triceratops, and Velociraptors during the Cretaceous era, so these trees have grown for a long time.
