Remember all those pictures I took for the art installation piece I’m creating with my husband?
We’re not using any of them.
And that’s okay; we had to try our first idea to learn that it wasn’t going to work, and therefore move on to another part of the process.
Right now, beneath the trees, the forest floor is dotted with delicate, shimmering flowers known as Spring Beauty.
The color variation among plants is, interestingly, due to the plant’s attempt to maintain a delicate balance between attracting pollinators (crimson flowers) and not attracting predators (white flowers).
