Plant of the Day
Tuesday 20 April 2021
Making the hedgerows billow with white blossom is the British native Prunus spinosa (blackthorn, sloe, bullace). This thorny, deciduous tree produces small white flowers followed by bloomy black fruits which are used to produce sloe gin. The next hedgerow plant to be producing clouds of flowers will be Crataegus monogyna (hawthorn).

Quote
Scholars routinely write books on the Jews of ancient Palestine, or on rabbinic literature and its producers, without justifying their limited focus. Certainly, one justification is practical. [...] Not only was there a dense, substantial Jewish population in parts of ancient Palestine, but also the modern state of Israel has facilitated and supported extensive archaeological excavation of these areas. As a result we now have excellent evidence for at least fifty late antique synagogues in Palestine compared to less than a third of that number for the rest of the late Roman Empire, as well as extensive excavation of towns with substantial Jewish populations. For many cultural and political reasons, no such support exists for the systematic survey and excavation of Jewish sites in the ancient Mediterranean diaspora. [...] But the inattention to the diaspora is not simply a function of a disparity in historical sources. The study of Jews in late antiquity has long been conflated with the study of rabbinic literature, itself mistaken for the study of Jews, and then often harmonized and homogenized in service to numerous modern ideological projects. Narratives of Jewish history from the nineteenth century onward regularly write out (or at least write over) the Mediterranean diaspora, subsuming its history under the rise of rabbinic hegemony. [...] Drilling down into these and other accounts only confirms their narrative of amalgamation and homogenization: all Jewish history in antiquity is the history of a unified, linked, singular, fundamentally rabbinic “Jewish community.” Some accounts are more responsible than others in acknowledging at least the presence of Jews in the diaspora, while often obscuring basic facts like the pervasive use of Greek and the minimal evidence for knowledge of Hebrew (let alone Aramaic).

We took a drive to the farm shop yesterday to grab some groceries and we saw these adorable sheep with their lambs. I love being in the countryside so much!

I had a nightmare about Black Mamba snakes in particular for some reason, and I remember them being fast as all fuck in the dream, so the moment I woke up I googled how fast they are in the hopes of calming myself but it didnt work cuz apparently they can move at like 10 mph and you cant outrun them ;-;

Top Ten Hated (But Misunderstood) Animals - 7- The Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes)
#TopTen #Hated (But #Misunderstood) Animals - 7- The Red #Fox (Vulpes vulpes) Our #list continues with the red fox. A #beautiful #canid species, much #maligned but mainly as part of a #PR #War to #justify the #sport of #hunting. #EndFoxHunting
What a beauty! Those typical vulpine features. Short-ish limbs, with often a squat, slinky posture. Those big triangular ears (they have exceptionally sensitive hearing), those gorgeous eyes and a tiny, boopable snoot! It is a beautiful animal.
