Science kicks in!
Actually I’m not a scientist, I’m sort of too artistic to be one. But also too scientific to be an artist. So I get to hand around looking foolish with both crowds.
Today looking at some comments on my blog got me to look up “Forget me not” on Wikipedia. And it said
“…5-lobed blue, pink or white flowers with yellow centers, growing on scorpioid cymes….” Hmmm, scorpioid cymes… and scorpiod cymes had a link, so I clicked it, and found myself on a fascinating page called “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inflorescence#Determinate”
I must say that I have never seen plants analysed in such a methodical manner – really fascinating!
Apart from that the only gardening I have had time for today is to walk past where the tomato plant is, and think, “I must put a stake in there and clear away all that lemon balm..”
