Garden Shapes

Have you gotten that email about the shapes of food looking like the organs they are supposed to benefit?  For example, the tomato with its chambers is good for the heart, and the cauliflower is good for your brain.  I find it interesting that this plant, agastache, attracts hummingbirds - although we don't have any in our neighborhood. 

And this plant, whose name escapes me at the moment, lantana ...notice how the buds look like tiny butterflies.  It reinforces my belief that there's order in the universe.

Ha! I don't think I've heard the theory about the vegetables. Your pictures are sure beautiful though. And you don't have any hummingbirds? My cousins all have them in Utah -- I would think you'd have them there too!
