“Chive Flower”

“Chive Flower”

“I simply can’t look into the heavens on a crisp starry night and somehow bring myself to believe that the gaping expanse that engulfs the whole of me is the product of chance happenstance. And neither can I believe that the gaping expanse that rests within me is anything less.”
― Craig D. Lounsbrough

The quote above has resonated with me for some time, and applies just as well as we view the macro universe. The incredible precision and ‘design’, if you will, of even a simple blossom like a chive, cannot be mere chance. The more I observe, the deeper I go, the more I’m struck with the incredible diversity of design, each with a specific purpose, unique to that plant, and the environment in which it exists.

I’ve always liked the flowers that chives produce but had not considered, until today, that they are not just fuzzy purple tufts, but rather, a complex group of individula flowers. This should not have come as a surprise, but it did.
