She flowered tonight.
Only one night each year her
male and female merge.

  1. What fun would this be if humans would have been created this way. Very interesting thought to think about that a plant is both sex in order to reproduce they rely on the bee to pollinate for them to reproduce. What some humans do not understand about the how important the bee is to our world we live in. What atracks the bee to flower is something to think about as what atracks male and female humans to each other to bring us together to bond to become one with each to want to start a family together.
