Flowers or little lacewings? by hawberries Flowers or little lacewings? by hawberries
My mother says these flowers only appear once every three thousand years. And we've got about fifty clumps everywhere round the house. It's a sign of something special and enlightening to be happening soon. I feel special. xD

EDIT: Apparently they're lacewing eggs...Oh well, they still are pretty. And science can't explain -everything-, so, maybe xD

EDIT 2: No, they're not! They look like lacewing eggs, but are actually different. If you look REALLY closely (can't see it in this photo) they have petals; and they do open when the sun's not too bright. Plus, lacewing eggs only hang around for a few weeks (right?) and after a while you can see where the little buggies have crawled out; we have some clusters that have been there for months and are still perfectly round.

EDIT 3: Actually, this lot are probably lacewing eggs, but there were definitely some flowers around the house--petals and all. This thing goes in scraps. I'll upload some of the genuine Youtan Poluo flower when I get the time.

You may not use this for ANYTHING without permission. I may let this out as stock, but you MUST ASK.

I'm pretty sure one of the photos showed the petals. >>
See if you can find it.

It's actually got a big influence from religion (or belief, whichever you prefer), so I'll just nudge science over to the other side of my brain for now :XD: I know what it is in Chinese--Youtan Polou Hua is Pingyin. Even if they are lacewing eggs, they are still quite pretty. I'll check in a few weeks to see if they hatch. xD

Besides, in some cases, tradition is far more fun than science, so I'll just store the knowledge away and treat it no different ;)
