compoundly pinnate

compoundly pinnate

something beyond my understanding appeals to me about pinnate leaves. it has to be more than just symmetry. when i think that ferns grew alongside dinosaurs, i wonder if our species has just spent enough time looking at feathery fronds that  the pleasure of it got baked into our genes, like feeling a little bit attached to the daily episodes of the sun’s rising and falling, to start and end our days.

    Dear Mary Jo,
    Thank you for this lovely blog and for tirelessly posting a new picture every day. I love the arrangements and their simple beauty. I read about your site in a German magazine and for several months now, this is one of the first things I do in the morning: refresh the page, watch the photograph. Pause and enjoy :).
    Best wishes, Dorothea
