(even though its raining)
From NYTimes article "Let’s Hear It for the Bees" by Leon Kreitzman
"In 'Philosophia Botanica' (1751), the great taxonomist Carl Linnaeus proposed that it should be possible to plant a floral clock. He noted that two species of daisy, the hawk’s-beard and the hawkbit, opened and closed at their respective times within about a half-hour each day. He suggested planting these daisies along with St. John’s Wort, marigolds, water-lilies and other species in a circle. The rhythmic opening and closing of the plants would be the effective hands of this clock."
that would be awesome, right? let's do that.
