We're heading out of Libra in a couple days, but today is Maura's birthday and she's a full-blown Libra:
her passion for justice balances a childlike playfulness.
Libra's colors are pink, green, and lavender, and their flower is the rose, so here's a birthday bouquet along those lines. I photographed it at the Farmers Market this week.
The roses are actually decorative cabbages.
Isn't there something Libra-ish about a beautiful bouquet you can recycle as soup?
And Libra gets a bouquet of stars too:
this is the Globular Cluster NGC 5897, class XI, in the constellation of Libra, which otherwise "contains little more than a scattering of faint galaxies."
A scattering of faint galaxies.
I love how poetic science can be, when written in words.
