Nerdy Inspiration: Frozen Moss Regrowth

One of the coolest things I ever read about when I was younger was a glacier. Last night, I read this article and was inspired. After 400 years buried under ice, mosses can regrow from one cell. The biologists reported their findings on May 27,2013 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The team of biologists ground up some of the plants and gave them "food", water and light. In mosses, any cell can be reset to grow a new plant. In seven of the samples, the moss regrew! This is kind of a huge deal because it contradicts the popular belief that plants cannot grow after glacier retreat.

I found a lot of inspiration in the colors and textures of the moss and the dirt. The formal outfit uses green to highlight the golden color of the dress inspired from the dirt. I went more classic and edgy with the accessories. The casual outfit uses texture to break up all of the green.
