Wave Your Stamens in the Air Like Ya Just Don’t Care!

I feel like time travel, while perhaps scientifically infeasible, can be achieved technologically by manipulating the scale of time rather than our position along its arrow. This allows us to leave the present behind, and experience a sort of alternate reality.

Those alternate realities are places where flowers are not mere bee-buffets, decorative flourishes and aromatic embellishments. They are dynamic symbols of awakening, floral fireworks, like nature’s way of saying “Good morning! What do you have for me today!?

I give you Flowers by Katka Pruskova, 730 hours of blooming buds condensed to mere minutes.

Wash it down with an animated version of Richard Feynman’s epic “Ode To A Flower”.
