A photo of a three-petaled flower on a plant whose leaves come also in triples.
I have written before, and published pictures to show, about how these flowers start out a shocking virginal white and fade to an instructive dilapidated violet. I prefer the closing stages of the story.
This is the first picture here for quite some time. I’ve had an attitude problem in recent weeks, obvious in a lack of words just not pictures, in some part due I think to the failure of our efforts to make my current employer interesting again in and of itself. For most of this spring, I couldn’t bring myself to take the camera out of the bag and point it at a flower. But now there is a backlog of things to write about and of pictures of plant genitals. And maybe a bit of light poking over the horizon.
