Flower Fireworks (184/365)

 2010 07 03 IMG_8204w
“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.
