Cherry Blossom Festival 2009

pink tree flowers.  cherry?white tree flowers.  cherry?The Cherry Blossom Festival is a strange event with no fixed date. It’s not even like a solstice or something related to the lunar calendar, it’s when the cherry blossoms decide to fall on a given year. Vancouver’s Cherry Blossom Festival is officially designated as March 28 - April 24, at least this year (2009), but on my street, the flowers hadn’t fallen even by the last day of April. That said, it’s entirely possible that the trees I had my eye on weren’t cherry trees at all. My grasp of things botanical is fairly weak as befits the owner of a black thumb of death.

Good Luck: Triangular

triangular good luck knot I’ve been thinking of the whole 3 sided versus three (knot type or 6-eared and 6 petals and whatnot. Something like 3-luck is certainly good for quick file naming and shorthand, but in descriptive text when trying to be clear and unambiguous, I’m thinking to use full-on mathematical (polygonal) terminology. Especially since, as demonstrated by the case of the good luck knots the number of ears does not necessarily properly describe a many-sided knot. So all those 4-sided good luck knots I’ve been talking about they’re all square even when they look round. sigh

But in any case, because pictures make a blog infinitely more interesting, here’s the triangular good luck knot. Nothing tricky here, just make a ‘Y’ shape with bights and crown it twice. Reverse direction for the second crown for a crisper shape.
