Spring is in the air, or is it not?
Talking about which, I’m a bit of a sex addict, to tell you the truth. Not only do I like the act of lovemaking but, I am also a bit of a voyeur when others engage in the act of procreation.
For the moment, I restrict my voyeuristic curiosity and exploration to the realm of plant life. Did you know that 90 % of flowering plants pollinate with the assistance of animals, birds, bees, insects and what have you. In the case of the Nerium Oleander (see photo) and the other ten percent of flowering plants, pollen or in this case, downy seeds are transferred by the wind, thereby enabling fertilisation and sexual reproduction. And the Oleander’s downy seeds look so fragile yet potent, so elusory yet vigorous.
Fascinating, isn’t it?
