I thought this quote from Richard P. Fenman's book "The Pleasure of Finding Things Out" was perfect for Earth Day. It celebrates the aesthetic appeal and art of nature while balancing it with the desire to understand the flower's beautiful complexity from a scientific perspective.
A stroll through my yard this morning turned into a conversation with my little fecund friends, the Daffodils. I decided to heed their admonition to spend time with them before they're all gone. There's no denying it, Spring is here!
