The Tiniest Seed
As tiny as lobelia seeds are, it amazes me that they can grow into anything. What's inside of the Crystal Palace variety is no less than the making of a deep blue universe -- a cluster of starry flowers so vivid they almost pierce the eye. Something so pure. So real. So deep. Is any other flower so intensely blue?
Lobelia seed is nothing short of a miracle.
"I have great faith in a seed...
Convince me that you have a seed there,
and I am prepared to expect wonders."
- Henry David Thoreau -
