This has nothing to do with cold climate gardening per se, but should be fascinating to anyone who loves flowers. At Floral Radiographs: The Secret Garden, Albert Richards displays his x-rays, yes, x-rays, of many common flowers. He produces an image both beautiful and fascinating. Now, I saw this same technique in the March 2003 issue of Marth Stewart Living, this time employed by Bryan Whitney to illustrate basic botany concepts. MSL came in my mailbox, but I found Richards’ floral radiographs via dublog via MSNBC’s Weblog Central. Amazing where you’ll end up when you start surfing the internet, eh?
If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.
