With its unique blend of grasses and sturdy perennials, the North American prairie is one of the world's richest and most beautiful biotopes. It's also one of the most endangered—only a tiny fraction remains of the millions of pristine acres that once stretched from horizon to horizon. Fortunately, you can re-create some of this diversity at home and enjoy these fascinating plant communities up close. You don't need to have endless acres at your disposal—you can have an authentic prairie garden on a city or suburban lot. And you don't even have to live on the Great Plains: prairie plants are practical choices for any landscape situation that has good drainage and full sun, whether in New England or the desert Southwest. Moreover, with their modest water needs, prairie plants make a great substitute for water-hungry lawns. And at a time when wildlife habitats are under increasing pressure from development, their flowers and foliage provide food and shelter for birds and beneficial insects. Eminently practical, Prairie-Style Gardens shows you how to use prairie plants in a wide variety of situations, from including a few prairie plants in an existing landscape to creating a full-fledged habitat garden. Especially useful is the author's advice on how to make prairie plants work in a typical urban or suburban setting, where it isn't easy to deviate from the local norm. A comprehensive plant profiles section helps you choose which plants will look best and thrive in your particular situation. Each plant entry includes detailed information on size, native habitats, site requirements, hardiness, appropriate landscape uses, care, companion plants, and available cultivars. Anyone can have a prairie—this book tells you how to do it.
Jesus never held anything back, including in the words He chose. Always with purpose, always with promise, He said that He will never leave us or forsake us. In the promise alone lies tremendous comfort, but when we experience His presence for ourselves, we have experienced something extraordinary. His holiness exudes what should be abstract, yet He makes Himself known in what feels tangible. He wants to touch us with His perfect holiness and desires that we capture His sacred presence personally, deeply. If we believe Jesus to be untouchable, this book reveals the opposite as we glimpse His birth to His resurrection . . . to the heart of mankind.
Le defi du patrimoine immateriel est de capturer l'essence du spectacle: l'idee de - capture - a cela d'interessant qu'elle suppose que les professionnels impliques dans la SIBMAS soient comme des chasseurs, sur la piste, de toutes sortes de facons, afin de coincer et de recueillir un petit quelque chose d'ephemere, qui en vaut la peine, et qui nous en apprend sur nous-memes et sur notre monde. Certains chasseurs se servent des bases de donnees, d'autres des ecrits ou des images - mais tous partagent un meme objectif: ne pas laisser se perdre un moment special, magique, que seule la vie du spectacle peut generer. The challenge of intangible heritage is to capture the essence of performance: the idea of capturing is interesting as it implies that the professionals, involved in SIBMAS, are on a hunt, a hunt in a number of different ways to pin down and preserve something ephemeral and something worth preserving, something that tells us more about ourselves and the world we live in. Some hunters use the database, some the written word, some the camera but all share a common goal: not to let go of a particular moment, a magic moment that only the live event can create."
