I love me some scabiosa pods.

Especially when I can expound my architectural history knowledge and say to the unsuspecting patron also lured into geometric detailed beauty of the scabiosa that they most certainly look like a Bunkminster Fuller Geodescent Dome. Sometimes they chuckle in a wit filled wink moment, otherwise a reaction of complete loss of wonderment concluded by a subtle blow off most NY'ers have perfected.

Did I tell my non-commenting readers that i'm about to be an even bigger know it all? Possibly being a slight exaggeration but I sure am knee deep into the history of the decorative arts. Can I get a whoop! whoop! for continuing education? Here I go flexing the ol' brain muscle this spring semester.
