Trees - "trying to understand their logic"

 "... I'd been so focused upon what the trees were not doing that I hadn't made any observations of what they were doing. Flowering and fruiting must have taken a backseat to something else that summer, something that I had failed to notice. The trees were always doing something: when I kept this fact placed firmly in front of me, I got closer to making sense of the problem." -- Lab Girl  p.140
