The Summer of Flowers

Who would want to spend their summers taking a plant summer class....this science nerd here. I spent 12 hours a week looking at plants, dissecting them and classsifying them. It was an awesome summer. A good friend of mine was in the class and I probably spent more time sticking my finger and scalpel under her microscope than looking at my own plants. I'm not great at school. In fact I'm a dropout. But the classes I did take (four years of them) I at least tried to have fun in. We spent the summer exploring state parks and woods looking for different flowers. It was that summer that I felt at one with nature until I picked the plant because then it was dead. But I sat and studied plants for hours. I still do it from time to time but it made me appreciate flowers more and taught me to stop and look at them.

Take some time to look at flowers.
