This year, perhaps because of the heat, cow parsley has dominated the wildlife portion of the garden. Through the viewfinder, late in the day, I saw their flat heads, arranged at all angles, against the dark of the hedge and I saw a cluster of galaxies, higgledy-piggledy, white on dark. The Universe, it seems, reflects its patterns on every scale.
