Suddenly I can vividly remember the smell of tulips, which I like very much.

wonderful photo.

I haven't noticed the smell; I should try before they're gone.

Wow! I know we're getting up close and personal with flower sex here, but it makes me thing of spring weddings.

Oh, I think flower imagery and form have been part of weddings for a lot longer than our knowledge that flowers are sex organs. ;)

For myself, I think these structures look like alien landscapes, and I try to get that sense of the alien out of them.

Then again, sex organs are also rather alien looking, as well, so maybe I should maybe just shut up right here. But it does explain Mapplethorpe a bit, doesn't it?
