    Kinda looks like if you asked a kid to draw a flower, that's a clock, with arms made of spoons!
    Nature was officially on something when it dreamed this one up!

    It's amazing how many variants exist for me to have never seen one before...but then, the University Arboretum has a lot of unusual plantings.

    The large variety at the link below, makes me wonder if my photo shows one in some particular stage of growth or of daily unfolding or something...
