I'm Thinking of Making a Rose...
The flower itself wold contain the usual male and female parts - the pistol and stamen - for reproduction after its own kind. Then there's the process of pollination that will need to take place, and for that I will need to make sure there's an aroma, and a radiant color that will attract bees. I'm not sure how to do all this, but give me time. Time is the key. Time.
There's also the production of nectar that the bees can turn into the sweetness of honey. When the rose dies it will have to produce its own seeds, so that it can reproduce after its own kind.
Well, I've had time to think about this and it's getting a little complicated, mainly because I have to make all this from nothing...as it happened in the beginning. Making a rose from nothing should have been easy because intelligent scientists say it wasn't designed with any intelligence. But I feel a little dumb because I don't know where to begin.
OK, I've given it some serious thought. Making a rose from nothing is way too difficult, and I don't think I could do it. Not in a million years. No, I think I will leave the rose and try something a little easier - like a bee.
