A common chameleon is the focus of one article. Cosmos calls the chameleon a turncoat because of its ability to change colors to blend with its surroundings. There is actually a short biology lesson here that my high school biology teacher would be very happy with. The picture of the chameleon is beautiful.
The story of the wonderful peacock flower tree begins with a schoolboy's memory. One of the things he remembers is that it was rare to see the tree when he was a child but through time it is becoming more and more plentiful. One of the reasons for that is because Cosmos is selling the seeds!
Next is the soap-nut tree. The fruits of this tree are used in making shampoo. They also have contraceptive and anti-migraine chemicals.
Now, Cosmos is not content with our world alone. He has a marvelous picture of the Leonid Meteor Showers. He speaks of watching for shooting stars as a child. I had never heard that one must immediately look for a green tree but I will remember.
As I began reading through this site from the beginning, I have seen Cosmos become more comfortable sharing his thoughts with us and I am glad of that. He has the knowledge of a scientist and the soul of a philosopher. There are so many topics covered here and I could not introduce you to all of them. Obviously, Cosmos is interested in a wide variety of subjects and he uses the word wonder in each post. He really feels the wonder that nature gives us. Take some time to enjoy the older posts as well as the new ones. Then leave Cosmos a nice comment and tell him Emma sent you. His link is below.
