We can learn a lot by watching nature. Its rhythms and patterns can teach us about our own rhythms and patterns. Without much effort, nature's flow of life seems to come and go without ever a need to fight against them. And so, we can especially learn about the patterns of blooming flowers.

As most assume, flowers tend to bloom during the day where creatures that crawl, buzz and zoom can pollinate them for continual reproduction of the plant. However, it is quite unique to know that some flowers bloom at night. They thrive in the dark.

The archetypes of night and darkness usually translate to describe a time of eerie, scary, evil and yet, confusing moments.
