SoilWeb queries via smartphone, over the last couple of years. An animated version would be a lot more fun.

Well done guys!
The hard efforts of the Antarctic Portal Team (including myself) at Landcare Research are reported in this article along with the early release version of the Portal.

Great post about Christchurch's post-earthquake recovery.
Beauty after chaos

There isn't much that's beautiful when a house is demolished after earthquake damage. Here in Christchurch we've seen plenty of damaged houses good for good; some are better gone but a lot of them were lovely old places.

Once they're gone, what's left? An open space. And it often looks so small compared to the imposing size of the house left behind.

The open space is usually just rubble or a clay base, so not much grows. But occasionally, just every now and then, a wonderful wilderness takes hold. And it's truly magic.

Today, after dropping the kids off for the first day of the 2014 school year, I happened to pass an open section from a demolished house on Locarno Street. It was a riot of flower colour. Many weeds, yes that's true, but also some wildflowers. I wonder if the owner had sowed special wildflower seeds.

Truly wonderful. Probably not adequately captured by the camera I had at hand, but oh well, there you go...
