Awe of a Flower

peony-5147

How wonderful to come across the quote and video below from the Feynman Series’ on ‘Beauty’ as I contemplated and photographed the very welcomed flowers to our garden–the magnificent peonies.

“…Look how beautiful it is

I see much more about the flower

I could imagine the cells in there

The complicated actions, which also have a beauty

It’s not just beauty at this dimension of one centimeter, there’s also beauty at smaller dimensions

The inner structure, also the processes, the fact that the colors and the flower are evolved in order

to attract inspections to pollinate it is interesting

it means that insects can see the color.

It adds a question: Is this aesthetic sense also exist in the lower forms that…why is it aesthetic…

all kinds of interesting questions which with science, knowledge, only adds to the excitement

and mystery, and the awe of a flower.”

Spring in New England

After one of the most difficult winters New Englanders can remember, Spring has finally sprung. Well, to be more exact–it’s still springing daily. You can feel the aliveness of the flowers and the people discovering them.
