(from my facebook post): I pass this a few times every week. Today I decided to stop and take photos. What really appeals to me is the variation in color within one massive cluster. That the brighter color is at the top, supported and surrounded by a mass of paler blossoms. The pink is not hidden, and its vividness is made more so by the contrast. The entire plant is full and strong and open and beautiful.I 'm pleased that at this moment, the metaphors that take shape in my mind when considering these flowers are positive ones. I see what is possible in the daytime after the storms have come through and the skies are clear and bright.
