    I just had to leave you a message because I came across your “flower development image” on Wikipedia and was intrigued by the wonderful graphic. Very nice!
    I’m an artist / graphic designer very much into plants.
    Check my blog, will be on Etsy soon also.
    Thanks for your picture! Best regards, Lisa
