A weekend of that most suburban of tasks, gardening, reminded me of these pictures I took a few years ago.
While trimming the excess growth from a wisteria I found this knot. It had probably been formed by the plants responding to stimulus of light and gravity.
This process had formed a figure of eight knot – beloved of climbers. I think it was the first new knot I learned when I started to climb.
So, here we have an example of apparent design without either purpose or intelligence. It was a good thing to find. This weekend of snipping and clipping yielded no such interest! But the mid afternoon tea and cake tasted mighty fine!
