“Crapemyrtles, Magnolias, Japanese Maples, Live Oaks, you name it, we got them all” reads the rusty sign hung next to the entrance of this Nursery near the Brazos River in Texas. I love how the English language uses the same word for the noble craft of taking care of a young child or plants. As if the language knew these two different types of Nursing are related and depend on each other to keep our planet balanced and healthy.
An unintended consequence of this composition is that when rotating it by ninety degrees, this image resembles a green Star-Spangled Banner.
