Everything is Connected

           Howard 2020
                                                          Ruffled Strawberry Parfait X FL Briar Patch
                                                  4" ”/31” MLa,Dor,Tet
                                                      3 way,18 buds

Light yellow with gold green edge and green heart. Pod fertile. Pollen looks sterile but I don’t think
I have actually tried it. This is a very pretty toothy bloom with perfect form. Please note it is only
about 4" in diameter. While I find this surprising looking at its parents,you just never know how
those genes will align.I can't think of too many small flowers with teeth.

The name can mean different things to different people. Remember that old song “The thigh
bone’s connected to the hip bone—etc”? If you google the words “Everything is Connected” you
can find an array of hits on many concepts, some of which can make you dizzy.

Rather than get carried away here I’ll post these quotes:

“We are all connected; to each other, biologically. To the earth, chemically. To the rest of the
universe atomically. We are not figuratively, but literally stardust.” ~ Neil DeGrasse Tyson

“Not everything that happens during the day is an open portending a good or evil development in
the future, but everything has meaning to one degree or another, for the world is an ever-weaving
tapestry from which no thread can be pulled without destroying the integrity of the cloth. The
breadth of Creation makes it impossible for us to step back far enough to see the story that the
tapestry tells; the intricacy of it, from the macro to the micro to the subatomic, makes it impossible
for us to comprehend the megatrillions of connections between the threads in just one small
fragment of the whole.”
― Dean Koontz, Deeply Odd
