In response to the photo challenge Structure and  linked to the daily word-prompt Educate

Working in a school in Key-Stage One, the science lesson  in ‘Spring Term Two’ always included plants and flowers. This involved learning about how they grow and the structure of a plant.

The topic was seamlessly linked into other subjects and the walls were adorned with colourful drawings, diagrams and structures. Each one drawn and painted by numerous little folk and not too dissimilar to these, well, one of them.

Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi.  

I’m still learning but I’m not sure I want to live forever,however,  if I were to die tomorrow, I have no doubt that someone will bring flowers.  In the meantime I’ll make do with the photos I recently snapped at home. All different, but the basic  structure is the same.

    Bravo Susan! Your photos are enticing and your content does “educate” your readers to the beauty, structure and and complexity of flowers. Many folks take flowers for granted but others such as yourself take the time to educate the rest of us. Thank you for sharing.
