Flowers with backlight effect

Pink daisy flowers made translucent by sunlight

Pink flowers – possibly some form of echinacea – tumbling over each other as if to watch something. They’re at a concert and the ornamental grass is performing on stage, perhaps, or at a football match. An exciting one.

But we know that’s just fancy. Unlike us, the flowers don’t need a reason to be like this, they simply respond at a cellular lever to the sunlight, the soil and whatever moisture they can seek out.

Glowing with translucent light, they were were more than enough to stop me in my tracks.

  1. They are obviously watching something. Our echinaceas look straight up all the time. Ours are stiff necked echinaceas.

  2. With that much gorgeousness around, it would be hard not to be watching something all the time! I definitely think some are stretching tippy-toe to see over the others. Perhaps even a gentle leaf-nudge. We know it cannot be just a mere matter of cells.
