“I wonder if I should jump?”
“What do you think little guy, can I make it?”
“I don’t know … it’s so dark. I can’t even see the bottom.”
“Maybe I should just back off, …
… turn away, and let you all look at some flower photos instead. Nothing more to see here, I’m not going to jump.”
I think, probably, most likely a coneflower bud. But then again, could be one of the rudbeckias like the one below.
A rudbeckia getting ready for a full bloom.
A rudbeckia, maybe the same one as above, holding on to a jewel with its petals, trying not to let go, as it fights its natural urge to bloom.
Thanks taking the time to view this post and for putting up with my anthropomorphic dialogs and thoughts.
