In the garden: Twining
I'm always amazed at how two tendrils can support each other as they twine out into space. Here's another one:
The twining is a strange soft of bootstrapping process, isn't? For a long time, I've thought of rhizomic growth -- stealthy but scalable propagation of roots -- as the right metaphor for the left (here, too). Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe the right word is this self-supporting twining process, out in the sun, up into the air. After all, honeysuckle scales, too, and it's almost impossible to get rid of once you've got it.
But what do we know?
It's hard for us to see everything....
