    This tree disapproved of my bike riding. (Look for two eyes and a nose above a rather crooked mouth)

    Default 3/12/21 - Flower (see breakdown in description)

    3/12/21 - Flower (see breakdown in description)

    On National Plant a Flower Day, which is celebrated on March 12 this year, hop on your bike, go outside, seek, then snap a flower.

    A few fun facts about flowers:
    1. Flowers have only been around for 140 million years
    2. Several centuries ago, the tulip was worth more than gold in Holland
    3. The largest Flower in the world is the flower of the Puya raimondii, which has a flower stalk 35,000 feet tall and bears over 8,000 white flowers.



    Points breakdown as below. No stacking; you'll either get 1 or 2 points depending on your submission:
    1. For TWO points, post a pic of a flower that is still attached to the plant, and the plant is in soil (it can be either in a pot or in the ground)
    2. For ONE point, post one of the following:
      1. The name of a flower or the word "flower" on a sign
      2. A likeness of a flower, e.g., in a mural
      3. A flower that has been cut from its plant, e.g., a bouquet


    As always, it shouldn't be something from home (like a flower jersey). Go ride and find one in the wild!

    Happy hunting!

    Default Face (using Pareidolia) 3/11/21

    On March 11, 1950, Bobby McFerrin - famous for the song "Don't Worry, Be Happy" - was born. Fun fact, this song was the first a cappella song to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

    So I was originally going to ask you to find a happy face, but that seems meh. To up it a notch and hopefully make it more fun, on your ride, find a face using pareidolia:
    The tendency to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern

    A few rules:
    1. Describe what you are seeing
    2. Don't use an actual face
    3. It has to be outside
    4. It can't be of or on a phone


    Happy hunting!

    3/11/21–Face (via pareidolia)
    On basketball hoops!
    Mounting screws or vertical back frame for eyes, that rectangle behind the net as a nose (or mouth, in the case on the left), rim and net for mouth/chin.

    I've always seen faces in cars - but I realized on my ride today that they've changed! They used to look a lot happier & cuter - or at least some of them did. While car faces still look like faces, today's cars mostly look nonplussed. I wonder if that's a reflection of social changes

    Anyhow after scouring a coupla neighborhoods and finding all these bored looking cars, I finally have up & went down Anne's cul de sac, where I know her neighbor has an old fashioned beetle. (Bet you can guess how I know that Go Drevil!) Beetles always look happy.

    This Beetle was fronted into the driveway. They look a bit different from behind.....This one has a dark arched thing on the hood that when turned upside down makes a nice smile underneath the taillight eyes.



    Oh and btw I love Bobby McFerrin - but "Don't Worry, Be Happy" was so overplayed that I didn't like him till after I heard some of his other stuff.

    Among my favorites of his are: Yes, You
    https://youtu.be/JITH0ERpp5Q
    and He Ran All the Way

    Nadine, I do too. I have a picture I took in France in about 1993 of a 2CV in a spot at the mouth of a lower parking garage level that looks like a face peeking out to see what's above. I wish I could find it for you. I suspect you'd be one of the people who gets it right away.

    I laid my bike on a bed of flowers for a quick break from riding! I got to watch trains go by from that hill!

    3/12/21 - Flower-plant
    I had so many plans for this one! I was out on my bike to go to breakfast with a friend. I figured that after breakfast, I'd go to a florist to see whether they had potted plants with flowers on them. If that didn't work, I had the address of a community garden. If everyone in the community garden was growing vegetables rather than flowers, I had the address of a park with gardens.

    And then half a block from where I had breakfast, I saw that there was a tiny fenced flower bed next to the sidewalk. The only issue was that it was fenced in, and I couldn't get my bike into the picture and still be close enough so the photo would show that the flowers were in the ground. However, by this time my boss was calling and asking pointed questions about when I would be back at my computer, so I decided I'd better take the photo that didn't take me out of my way as I biked home.

    3/12/21 - Flower

    One of the signs of spring I always look forward to is the daffodils in Rock Creek Park. They add a vibrant pop of color when everything is still drab and gray.
