Trumpets of the Day #2067

I think I was a little in my head as I walked to the lab today, but these red flares still caught my attention, hanging over the sidewalk just a few inches from my eyes. It’s hard to see from any particular angle, but the flowers here look almost like a bouquet of trumpets or phonographs, and their filaments could be lines of music frozen in the air. There’s a feeling of motion in the way they’re splayed – I’d love to see them grow.

Crawling around in these wiry strands must be a real athletic test for foraging bees, no?
