i realize as i look at this image that i really don’t understand bloom–that dusty white powder that grows on some stems like raspberry canes, and some fruits like plums. i really don’t know what purpose it serves, when it appears, or how long it stays. whatever the reasons, it always catches my eye. i love when i have a topic like that, narrow and specific, and i get to look forward to going down a rabbit hole with it for a happy 20 minutes or so…i’ll have to catch up with you tomorrow, i am off to google bloom.
