I’ve been away from posting on this blog far too long. Today I’m home ill, trying to endure feeling miserable by looking at a lovely day outside the window. The light catches maple seeds drifting down, thick enough to be mistaken for a swarm of insects at first glance. They spiral as they fall…graceful tiny helicopters.
I stepped outside to snap a picture of the fallen seeds on the deck. I wonder what percentage of the seeds that land on the lawn will sprout.
