Pic(k) of the Week: Mauve mob (and kismet)

Mauve mob

Back in May, I noticed these tiny (~4-cm) mauve wood-sorrel wildflowers blooming in a field just beyond the perimeter of Seminary Wood, in Legacy Park, in the city of Decatur Georgia, USA.

Then, kismet.

A few days ago, a pianist noticed the photo on Flickr and offered this response:
With Claude Debussy's Rêverie, performed by me, I comment on your excellent image. Emotions between reality and dream.

Ain't the world weird and wonderful, sometimes?

  • Violet wood-sorrel:
    Oxalis violacea is a native plant in much of the United States, from the Rocky Mountains east to the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico coasts, and through Eastern Canada. It has a tendency to cluster in open places in damp woods and on stream banks, and in moist prairies.
  • The pianist is a gentleman named Antonio Castagna. His bio (as translated from Italian by Google) at his YouTube site:
    pianist, concert player, [past?] director of the "Gaetano Braga" Musical Institute of Teramo and piano teacher at the "Umberto Giordano Conservatory of Foggia.
