These Common Blue Violets were closed when I went out onto my balcony in the morning, and opened a few hours later when the sun came out. One of my favourite things is to show people that plants do, in fact, move. If you think plants are boring because they "don't do anything", then I think you're boring because you don't pay attention to the world around you.
I get it: plants are slow. For me, that that means they can teach us to watch for subtle changes throughout the day, the week, the season, the year. It's a reminder for us frantic, noisy apes that we, too, can slow down, look closer and appreciate things that are easily ignored.
