in addition to the well-wishing flowers from the boss, i also got a gorgeous bit of floral sympathy post-exam from Vivian, of super fire-and-ice roses and purple statice. just to prove to me once more that even familiar things about biology can still hold surprises (like i keep saying, if we knew all the answers we wouldn’t call it research), the statice developed little white secondary blooms. rising up from the center of some of the clusters of papery purple petals are tiny white flowers that don’t really look a thing like statice petals do at all.
huh. no idea it ever did that.
