Merriam Webster defines Skookum as
✔Marked by strength or power
✔Marked by excellent quality
Now coming to a simple question…
Which is stronger? A leaf or a bud/flower?
The answer is easy-peasy. Is it not so?
The bud is a delicate structure yet to develop whereas the flower is a lightweight structure.
There is no comparison between flowers and leaves in the matter of strength.
The leaf is definitely stronger than bud/flower. Am I right?
But in the image below you can notice how the buds pierce the leaf and bloom into a full-fledged flower.(shallow depth of field is due to result of using 100mm f/2.8 macro lens)
I am also surprised at the shape of the holes in the leaf. More or less they are round shaped!
How is it that they are circular?
I don’t know.
What does this teach us?
“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realise how close they were to success when they gave up”
Thank you for your visit.
Take care, my friend.
