I took exactly one photo of this flower, in part because I had ventured into my neighbor’s back yard to look at her flowers. To get one photo, I had to step carefully into the middle of her garden and I felt awkward doing this – especially without her blessing. I need to go back.
As for the title, the inspiration was the Star Wars Death Star. Somehow, a cheery purple spherical flower seemed to be the antithesis of the menacing structure in the movie.
