Anquilla dieffenbachii

A given volume of water, frozen in a given moment of time, encodes information about the larger volume of which it is a part as well as the longer time period of which it is a slice. It should be possible to infer from the ripples in this photo to the location of ripple-makers (eg ducks, fish, the wind etc) which exist outside the frame both spatially and temporally. The main ripple-maker in this photo is actually the eel just under the surface (its back can be seen just breaking the surface at bottom-left, with its tail extending to just below the middle of the picture and then curving downwards again). A set of eddies have spun off the eel's tail and the eel's back is forming v-shaped ripples as it moves out of shot.

Borago officinalis

Borage is one of the prettiest herbs. This one is in the Sustainable Backyard, but there is some in the Herb Garden as well. You can eat it, brew it into a tea, steam your face it in and so on. Or you can just leave it be and enjoy the colour of the flowers.
