A Wet Movie and a Few Near Relatives

I’ve discovered that the Chinese lantern plant (Physalis alkekengi)
that I keep trying to photograph across the street is related to the ground cherry in Iowa and the cape gooseberry in New Zealand. Cool! I enjoyed this extraordinary photo of the filigree here at the UBC botanical gardens. If I were going to try to paint these things, I would surely use a model like this.

I watched the 2001Monsoon Wedding yesterday and although I thought it uneven and off to a slow start by the end I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I found myself missing my nose stud by the end of it though. Sigh.
