In the poem ‘ A Poison Apple ‘, poet William Blake illustrates that how a person, angry with another. Through a variety of tropological element, Blake paints a picture of the angst of one individual directed toward his friend. First he uses hyperbole to emphasis the effect he has created. This is evident when he writes that his tears are causing the anger to grow between him and his friend. As written on line five and line six of stanza two, ‘And I watered it in fears Night and morning with my tears, ’. In reality, tears do not make things grow. In the poem though, Blake’s despair is growing more and more with each and very tear he sheds. The hyperbole continue with ‘ I told my wrath, my wrath did end. ’ and ‘ I told it not, my wrath did grow. ’ Wrath is something inside a person that cannot be grow like a tree. It is an emotion that people cannot always control. In the poem, Blake is showing that he can control it but in reality he cannot. That was the start of the anger to his friend. Last but not least, the way he grows the tree is a strong hyperbole to the way people do normally. ‘ And I sunned it with smiles ‘ and ‘ And with soft deceitful wiles. ‘ in line seven and line eight of stanza two, it described the way the author grow his anger and wrath. Trees should be grown in mud but Blake’s ‘ tree ’ was bombastically grown in soft deceitful wiles which is impossible to happen in real life. The anger of him was becoming more and more. William Blake does a masterful job of comparing the growth of a tree in garden to the growth in life. Unfortunately the tree that Blake is growing is a “ poison tree ”. If thrives on the anger and wrath of a friend, rather than on...

The Powerful Poison: Savannahians
Savannah is a peculiar town, with interesting cases of disturbed people. Berendt’s decision to include Luther Driggers has the effect of showing how failure can develop people’s worst side in a society like Savannah. He has an important meaning in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil because if the reader connects Danny and Luther’s stories he or she will understand that they were both victims of Savannah’s society.
Savannah is remarkable for its history. The town was the world’s leading cotton port in the past. As a result a rich group with power emerged in the city: the aristocracy. This high society has its own values, and its own lifestyle. According to Jim Williams, “men from Savannah’s good families are born into a pecking order they can never get out of, unless they leave the town forever” (235). There is no other choice for these folks rather than to be conservative.
Even the other social classes have given support to maintain their system. The black people, half of Savannah’s population, always lived segregated. A lot of them were slaves in the past, and after they reached their freedom they always had fewer opportunities than the white people. Instead of fighting for their rights, black people were cordial with white folks, living in harmony. They developed the same aristocratic values, and created their own high society, where the black lighter skin belongs.
...clothes and new hair style.
It was the time to use more cosmetics, I understood the truth dawn on me – As Marxists’ viewpoint that science and technology were a primary productive force.
Basically, overproof additive was the basic production conditions. As time went on, the steamed bread makers were benefiting more and more from science and technology. In fact, enlarge additive could change me into a very big man that doubled in size, surprising. And no one dare to bully me because I looked stronger. Pesticides (mainly DDVP) were also used to improve my appearance and taste, unbelievable! I had variety uses that I was useful in rat and insect poison. Industrial whitening additive was an essential part of my make-up to have the effect of perfect whiteness of snow.
Through all these process, I became a real deadly and powerful poison in the world. Congratulations on us!
Hopefully, I will see you soon in your dining table. No wonder you are licking your chops, there were steamed poisonous bread with delicious dishes for your dinner. Just Enjoy!
...Grow your own Bonsai TreeBonsai trees are small, yet enchanting. Learn how to grow one of these little wonders in your own home.
Bonsai is an ancient Asian gardening art. It involves deliberately stunting the growth of a tree to obtain a miniature version, purely for aesthetic purposes. Besides being stunted, the tree may also be shaped to make it more visually appealing. Perfecting the art of growing bonsai trees usually requires years of practice. However, with a little effort and patience, you too can make your own beautiful little bonsai tree. All you need is to remember a few basic steps, and carry them out with the help of some garden implements.
The Art of Bonsai
Bonsai is assumed to have originated in China around the year 200 A.D. It is said to have been developed by the Chinese healers who had to transport medicinal herbs and plants over great distances to attend to people who were ill or injured. The healers had to make sure the plants stayed fresh and did not lose their potency. Since they could not transport large trees wherever they went, the healers began to devise ways to shrink the plants and still keep them healthy.
Although deliberately shortening plants was initially done for practical purposes, this craft also began to be seen as a decorative art. Early attempts at making bonsai trees appear visually appealing, involved growing and twisting them into different shapes. Popular among these were those...
...TREE PLANTING GUIDELINES.
In order to have a healthy tree in the future; the tree must be planted properly. The following are guidelines to assist you in planting your tree properly. Prior to planting, remember to move the tree by the root ball or the container. Never grab it by the trunk.
1. Digging the Hole:
The planting hole should be at least twice the width of the root ball or container to encourage the roots to grow into the surrounding soil. The sides of the planting hole should be sloped. The hole should be no deeper then the root ball or container to prevent the tree from settling or being planted too deeply.
2. Tree Preparations:
For a container tree; remove the container. For a balled and bur lapped (B&B) tree, remove the rope around the trunk and loosen the burlap. If the root flare is not visible, gently remove soil from the top of the ball until the tree is again at proper soil level. On both types of trees, check for large circling roots. If present, use pruning shears to make a clean cut. (Girdling roots will continue to grow in a circle, resulting in the death of the tree.). If the circling roots are fibrous, make 3 or 4 vertical slits into the sides of the root ball about 1 inch deep. On B&B trees, remove as much wire, rope, burlap and other materials as possible once the tree...
...Analysis of “Apple Tree” (extract)
John Galsworthy is an English writer of XIX-XX centuries famous for The Forsyte Saga and he won the Nobel Prize in literature in 1932. It is important to know, that he started his literary career with long short stories, and The Apple Tree, which was published in 1917, is one of the most popular by Galsworthy.
This extract does not say anything in particular about the whole story, but we can see very vividly the beginning of certain kind of events. Basically, it is an exposition of the story, where we find out two friends, Frank and Robert, who were on a tramp, met one girl, and asked her to admit them to stay for the night at hers.
In this short author shows us a great skill of describing characters, we can not only see, but also feel the characters, to understand them. Description of the landscape and the name of the story help us to know the character of Ashurst, what he is going to do. As everybody knows, an apple is a symbol of lapse from virtue according to the biblical legends. In the fourth paragraph, Frank was impressed by the girl and her beauty, and the nature helped us to recognize what kind of person is Ashurst. So, he is romantic, scatter-brained and certainly, he is a dreamer. We can say it for sure, because author gave very poetic description for his thoughts and feelings. In the beginning of the text we see direct description of his character: “Ashurst pale, idealistic, full of absence”,...

I was born from a mango seed and all the thankfulness for my birth goes to Radha and the almighty. Radha, by the way is my best friend and in other word owner. She love mangoes and once after eating a mango she threw the seed to soil. Knowingly or unknowingly she made me originate. After survival from bad climate and many other problems I sprout out of the soil one day. The new world was surprising and fearful for me. From that day, Radha took care of me. She was always careful about my matters. She created a pebble surrounding around me and made me her own friend. Radha always cared to give me enough food and she never left out one day without a visit near me. If I am correct, she left me only once when I was two years old. She was hospitalized and she couldn't look after me that days. She felt very sorry for the same and extra water was given to me. I missed her a lot and that day onwards she never left me alone. After her school time she would come near me and nurse me with her tiny hands. It was her affection ad love that helped me to grow. I am thankful to Radha and I showed this gratitude by giving her sweet...
...What is a Tree Ring?
Trees are organisms in the plant kingdom that appear to be so simple to us but are very complex in their habitat. The tree trunk is the biggest stem and the trunk possesses many branches which again have stems on them. Leaves are found on almost all the branches and stems of trees. Leaves are present on the top of the tree while the roots found at the bottom take the nutrients from the ground. All plants including the trees have a central medullary region or Pith region made up of parenchyma cells. Leaves are the sites for preparation of food necessary for the tree to survive. Hence it is essential for the tree to supply the water and nutrients to the leaves from the ground through the stem. A tree ring is simply a layer of wood produced during one tree’s growing season. A cross section of a tree often shows a distinct pattern of concentric tree rings. Each tree ring marks a line between the dark late wood that grew at the end of the previous year and the relatively pale early wood that grew at the start of this year. One annual ring is composed of a ring of early wood and a ring of late wood. The growth occurs in the cambium (the thin, continuous sheath of cells between bark and wood). In spring, the cambium begins dividing. This creates new tissue and increases the diameter of the tree at two places:
A tree is a plant form that occurs in many different orders and families of plants. Most species of trees today are flowering plants (Angiosperms) and conifers. Trees show a variety of growth forms, leaf type and shape, bark characteristics and reproductive organs. For the listing of examples of well-known trees and how they are classified, see List of tree genera.
The tree form has evolved separately in unrelated classes of plants, in response to similar environmental challenges, making it a classic example of parallel evolution. With an estimate of 100,000 tree species, the number of tree species worldwide might total 25 percent of all living plant species. The majority of tree species grow in tropical regions of the world and many of these areas have not been surveyed yet by botanists, making species diversity and ranges poorly understood. The earliest tree-like organisms were tree ferns, horsetails and lycophytes, which grew in forests in the Carboniferous period, however these were plants were not trees, since they lacked woody tissue. Trees evolved in the Triassic period, with conifers, ginkgos, cycads and other gymnosperms appeared producing woody tissue, and were subsequently followed by tree-form flowering plants in the Cretaceous period.
A small group of trees growing together is called a grove or copse,...
