The other day, I visited a greenhouse that could very well have been where Professor Pomona Sprout brewed her Mandrake Restorative Draught. Many of the plants in there were incredibly anthropomorphic, their odd, contorted shapes being strangely expressive. Honestly, I could have spent hours in there – it was such a wondrous place.
For the most part, it was the chubby, elephantine trunks and gourd-like growths that caught my imagination (more on that to come in a post soon) but what captured my eye for this week’s vignette was two leaves of a nameless plant, seemingly engaged in a mating dance of sorts – caught on camera in mid-caress. Oblivious to my intrusion, the two only had room for each other. I thought it was quite beautiful, snapped my picture, and quietly left them alone.
