Spiderwort

A fairly ordinary flower that is really interesting when you get a high magnification look:

The flower is about half an inch across. You’re seeing the anthers and stamens at the flower center. The lines of bead-like stuff are single plant cells

    • The bead chains, contrasting colors, and the irregular shapes are exotic-looking. I was thinking of an undersea scene, but another world fits, too. Thanks so much for commenting and for the kind words.

  1. I’m fond of spiderworts too, and I know how hard it usually is to get all those parts in focus at the same time. You may still have spiderworts up north, but they’ve been gone in Austin for 2 to 3 months.
