Amaranthus Caudatus Is Weird, Otherworldly, and Our New Flower-Arranging Essential - Architectural Digest
Amaranthus caudatus, which also goes by the name of “love-lies-bleeding,” quite fitting given its attention-grabbing appearance. According to the Missouri Botanical Garden, the plant “gets its unusual common name from its tiny, blood-red, petal-less flowers that bloom in narrow, drooping, tassel-like, terminal and axillary panicles throughout the growing season.” In other words, the stems are naturally floppy and covered in dense clusters of blooms. They’re not always red though—the Missouri Botanical Garden goes on to point out that Amaranthus caudatus can come in other colors, like lime-green.Amaranthus caudatus came to our attention when we spotted it on the feeds of a handful of floral designers we admire. “As a florist and observer of nature, I love to find unconventional tools for my compositions,” says Carolina Spencer, founder of Barcelona-based Matagalán. Amaranthus caudatus is one of them. “When everything goes up, they fall, and their beauty is just that.”As Carolina Spencer demonstrates, Amaranthus caudatus commands you to stop and stare.

They seem to come from another planet not only because of their movement and way of growing but also because of their texture, like sugar cotton or a weird a small cloud just picked up from the universe and converted into a flower,” Carolina goes on. “People may think, I...

Mourners leave flowers for duck boat victims as officials probe for answers

She says the captain of the boat told passengers, "Don't worry about grabbing the life jackets – you won't need them." By the time it was clear that life jackets were needed, she says, "it was too late."
The extended Coleman family likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up. Tracy Beck, of Kansas City, Missouri, said she recalled the family members waiting in line. After they stopped for a picture, a ticket taker realized they should have boarded at a different location and reassigned them, the Associated Press reports.
While a severe thunderstorm had hit around the time of the boat's capsizing, causing the 5-foot waves on Table Rock Lake, much of what specifically caused the boat to sink – while other vessels withstood the harsh conditions – is unclear. Teams found the boat sitting upright on its wheels in 80-feet of water.
A second duck boat on the lake in southwest Missouri, about 225 miles southwest of St. Louis, made it safely to shore.
The U.S. military in World War II originally used duck boats to transport troops and supplies, and they were later modified for use as sightseeing vehicles.
Officials at the National Transportation Safety Board, which is investigating the accident, said it could be a year or longer before all the answers are found.
NTSD board member Early Weener said investigators would release a preliminary report within a month that could provide some information about wha... May 24, 2018
