Do you ever take adventure walks, looking for curious things to photograph? A world awaits, and not always at eye level. It is interesting to imagine a pipe leading to chilled water. That’s what we uncovered while walking near Tate Street recently. These small green plants discovered the water source, too. Like humans, plants need water and chilled H20 is an added bonus for them, too! The plants, need the water so they can grow and produce oxygen for humans.
Today’s photo evokes as many questions as answers. Why is the water chilled? Why is the cover painted bright orange? How long has this pipe been here? Is it still used? How large will the plants grow? How much oxygen can they produce in their lifetime? We’re sharing this photo with our S.T.E.A.M., ABC Wednesday, friends. As for all of the questions, that is science at its best. Asking the right questions can be as important as finding answers. Today, on ABC Wednesday, O is for Oxygen.... and Orange. Thank you, dear readers, for allowing us to Opine.... once a day, every day.
