“Flowers construct the most charming geometries: circles like the sun, ovals, cones, curlicues and a variety of triangular eccentricities, which when viewed with the eye of a magnifying glass seem a Lilliputian frieze of psychedelic silhouettes.”
Duane Michals, *The Vanishing Act*
TIME: 7:43 AM
PLACE: Along the bike trail
SUBJECT: Queen Anne’s Lace
MonkeyBoy and I woke up early this morning and rode the bike trail. We counted the animals we saw while riding: 13 rabbits, 11 squirrels, 1 cat and one cardinal. There were many Queen Anne’s Lace flowers along the trail. I made MB stop so I could take a photo of them. I said that some of them look like snowflakes; he said that they reminded him of fireworks. Being that tomorrow is the Fourth of July, I think that his observation is more appropriate.
