» it may be exquisite but can you determine its pistils, stamen - do you know where its carpels are, whether it is a monocot or a dicot, how many sepals it has, whether it is male or female or not displaying either. Did you know its corolla is within its calex?

Or are you just ooh-ing and aah-ing over a pretty pink thing, withoutn truly understanding the magic and complexity that goes into creating its life?

» Do you have to know how paint is made to enjoy a van Gogh? Do you have to understand the physics of the internal combustion engine to ooh and aah at an Audi TT? I don't think so.

Still, if you know so much about the Dracaena Fragrans, Mister Power, maybe you could educate us! We're listening....

» Looking at Fred bloom over the weeks, has me wondering if such a plant would look as lovely in my own flat. :-)

» Watching Fred bloom has been a continually rewarding little nugget of checking your site every day, Derek. He's starting to look pretty outrageous, and I couldn't help but openly 'ooh & ahh' a little more. ;)

Sometimes all the widgets backfire, encouraging the very behavior they're designed to avert. The rules have a dangerous side-effect: they create a game.

I've been watching fireworks there for years, but last night was different. And not just because it was clear.
