I recalled that earlier I had been lamenting that I don’t really recall doing many science experiments in School despite them being on the syllabus. I did however make a connection that might explain why. As I picked up these flowers a wave of memory hit me! When I was in school one of my science teachers was arrested and prosecuted for picking daffodils on a public highway. If my memory is correct he offered a defence that he was picking them so that the class could study chlorophyl and siphon effects under the microscope.
I don’t know if he went to jail – but I do know I never got to look a pretty flowers in a science lab.
