A rare natural phenomenon turns one of Austria’s most beautiful hiking trails into a 10 meter-deep lake, for half the year.
Located at the foot of the Hochschwab Mountains, in Tragoess, Styria, Green Lake is one of the most bizarre natural phenomena in the world. During the cold winter months, this place is almost completely dry, and used as a country park where hikers love to come and spend some time away from urban chaos. But as soon as temperatures rise, the snow and ice covering the mountaintops begin to melt, and the water pours down, filling the basin below with crystal-clear water.
Water levels go from one-two meters at most, to over 10 meters, in the early summer. The waters of Green Lake are highest in June, when this extraordinary place is invaded by divers, curious to see what a mountain park looks like underwater. Fish swimming over wooden benches, a grass-covered bottom, trees, roads, roads and even bridges create a surreal setting that feels like it belongs on dry ground. That’s because for half of the year, that’s exactly where it’s at.

Occupy Austin Guerrilla Gardeners make one new public garden every week.  Some have been destroyed the city, others remain and are sprouting vegetables.  We have had run ins with park staff who are confounded by our activities and threaten us with police who never show up. 

We do this to make people rethink notions of food, of where it comes from, of who produces it.  We do this to make people rethink the use of space and the concept of property.  We do this to make people rethink the concept of labor versus employment.  We do this so you will do it to.

One year in one image. Looking out from his window, photographer Eirik Solheim snapped an image of the same spot every hour for an entire year in 2010. He then cherry picked 3,888 of the best images and stitched them (with help from his readers) from left to right in chronological order. Each line is a different image and the end result is the interesting shot you see above.

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.

Dear tumblr friends,

i guess most of you remember this picture: How to Eco fit your garden

It had such a great response! Within two days it had over 200 notes!

Ever since i started gardening a few years ago, i’ve been looking for pictures like this, pictures which inspire in a very practical way. I was looking for real things other permaculture folks were doing, as many people just don’t know where to start, they don’t have a picture of a well looking permaculture paradise garden in their heads.

These examples play such an important part! I want more of them! Many more! More photographs of permaculture gardens can be seen online nowadays, for example on http://www.natural-gardens.org/ but what i want is more designs. Designs which are made for one thing: inspiration! Unfortunately, even though i’d love to sketch some designs, my drawing skills are quite poor (thanks to school, which took my precious time, and then when i was older i never had the same enthusiasm as when i was little…), so, is there anybody out there who’s willing to transfer my sketches and ideas into works of art? I want as many people as possible, as i think there are many more people like me whom have already been into these things for some years and whome have ideas but need a “translator” ;)

Go on, folks!

And i really want to highlight this blog post on “Balcony Garden Dreams” for anyone who wants to draw gardens (i will, someday ;)

Low-tech tricks for drawing your edible garden ideas into reality

Any artists, any designheads, please come together! Anyone else, please reblog! :)
