Ever wonder what's in a flower? Ask Aina Jean's grandson!
We were outside and I was trying to keep him amused, so I mentioned how much I liked flowers. Sure enough, he returned with a white and pink closed flower from my Weigela tree. I pulled a petal and marveled at the spectrum of pink going into the white. I mentioned how God had created the flower, along with the universe as well as us, etc. Then I proceeded to peel the rest of the petals.
I showed him the stamen, explaining about bees and pollen. Remember, I was trying to keep him amused for a short period of time… I wasn’t really expecting him to be listening.
As that flower was pulled apart and thrown, he brought me another.
When I got to the inside, I noticed a myriad of small, black specks. I said aloud, “I wonder what those are?”
And Faust responded, “Peppered bee poop!”
