Photo of the Day #2136

Just a scatterbrained snapshot today. Starting a week from now my days will be packed with code, so I should really be trying to find as much color in the time remaining as I can; but my thoughts have been flitting to and fro with all the things I need to have done, and it’s been hard to focus on enjoying any particular thing.

These glumly-lit flowers surprised me when they bloomed, bursting out of modest brown buds, and it seems they stay open even when night falls, casting out their molecular music around the clock. They still look a bit like aliens to me, like the eyes or ears of something mostly buried beneath the concrete.
