Do you ever think about flowers?
I mean, really think about them... the fact that they are the reproductive organs of a plant. I remember studying flower anatomy in biology, hearing words like fertilization, stamen, ovary, pistil...

Georgia O'Keefe painted flowers in a sort of botano-erotic fashion. I love her paintings. They make me blush.

Flowers are generally associated with female reproductive organs, but they can actually be either male or female or both.
I think about this every once in a while, especially when my Christmas Cactus blooms. The entire plant dresses itself in outrageous, enormous three-tiered flowers. They are so showy, so vivid. This is a plant that knows how to flaunt its sexuality. It seems borderline indecent.
Is it weird that I think about that? I am a freak, right?
Next time your honey gives you flowers or you give flowers to someone sweet, I think you should remember what they are; it makes it so much more suggestive, don't you think?
