enter the vortex!

<span class=
<span class=

These ranunculus remind me of black holes, and all my weekends spent on the event horizon. Get it?
No? Well, It's free flower time and you don't have to be a physicist* to win these crazy kids. Just comment for a chance.

*Actually - I've been thinking and reading a lot of physics this year and I'd love to do a barter with someone who actually knows a lot about physics so I can ask all the questions I have. Wouldn't that be neat, information for flowers?

i'm no physicist, but you can still ask me questions... i just might make up a few answers or two. and i would love to get sucked into this ranunculus vortex.

Wish I could help you with your physics request, but I'm not very savy in that department. However I do love ranunculus and I can think of the perfect Brooklyn home for them : )

Pick me! Pick me!
Nicole Milman :) love the ranunculus, but don't love how the buds are so heavy and break off the stems so easily!

Caroline said...

I feel that it might be my week to win this time... fingers crossed (as always).

Raq said...

That barter sounds great! I hope that someone reaches out here. Sign me up for a chance to win this week.

What the frit?!(illaria) Are those yellow checkerboards??? Love 'em!

Samantha said...

Oh man, fingers crossed!

And I'm no physicist but might I add that scientist friends are so underrated. AKA essential to one's well-being. It's hard to imagine what life was like before I had my entomologist pal.

I work very closely with physicists, and rarely understand even the most minute detail of their work.

But I know that flowers are pretty!

Maddercarmine said...

beautiful & mysterious.....these always remind me of Paris more than anywhere else in the world.

Pea Snap said...

I wish I were a physicist!

I am not a physicist, but I am a historian. Any history questions? :) I love your flowers -- I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Thanx for the chance.

i think i'm going to go get schooled so i can make myself a viable barter partner. physics, hmm? how about proofreading? i love your work . . . and your blooms.

leah said...

i love ranaculus times of year!

I wonder about symmetry and balance and proportion in black holes since they're identified by the absence of those (+ more). very unlike flowers, but a fading away of the gravitas certainly happens when peering at a bouquet...

sam said...

perfect! and my favorite color too!

mary timmons said...

I listen to this when my astrophysical curiosity gets piqued: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSgiXGELjbc. Ranunculus, yes, please
