The nouns ecology and economy have as their first element the Greek noun oikos, meaning ‘household,’ so I’m playing with words in this post’s title because the spiderwort (Tradescantia* spp.) shown in today’s picture was one of a group that bloomed alongside our house at the beginning of the month. I also played with the perspective—neither horizontal nor vertical, neither upright nor sideways—when I photographed these flowers and buds on March 6. (That exemplifies point 10 in About My Techniques.)
*You came across the name Tradescant near the beginning of a post last week.
