In my mother’s garden, curious yet amazing papyrus plants grow in the water of her pond. These are the same papyrus plants that old pharoah grew, rather his enslaved people grew, along the banks and in the marshes of the Nile. Papyrus was used to make paper and as a substitute for wood which was scarce. In addition to it’s pragmatic uses, the papyrus is very beautiful. Its bright green needles have tiny starbursts at the ends. I love the way they look when the sun lights them from behind in the morning.
