Sometimes as we get into the grind of late Spring and Summer gardening chores, we become focused on the work and not the beauty just within our grasp.
Whenever I get angry at the weeds and their incredible ability to fling their seeds far and wide, I look at these photos from the World’s Fair held in Shanghai, China, last year. (take a look at the weeds of Beekman here)
These shards–like shooting stars bringing some mysterious organism from a galaxy far, far away.
Standing amidst this glowing universe, I imagined this to be the view that worms have for that split second during planting season before the seeds are once again covered by the earth.
For them, it must be a mind-blowing moment of sheer ecstasy.
The design firm said, “After the Expo, just as dandelion seeds are blown away and dispersed on the breeze, the Seed Cathedral’s 60,000 optic hairs, each one containing the huge potential of life, were distributed across China and the UK to hundreds of schools as a special legacy of the UK Pavilion at the 2010 Shanghai Expo.”
