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.

Lowly, with a broken neck,
The crocus lays her cheek to mire.
- George Meredith
The world is a rose, smell it and pass it to your friends.
- Persian Proverb
