daffodil bud, heavy metal, monkey love

The paper-thin membrane, which covers the bud of a daffodil, wrinkles and begins to fall away as the bud opens.

"I'm not a silver person, " says a woman in a fashion shop, to explain to the owner her lack of interest in the silver necklaces, bangles and other trinkets on offer. Pleased with the description, she repeats: "I'm not a silver person."

Yara and Thiego, a pair of red titty monkeys in the rain forest zone of the London zoo, I read in today's paper, are so devoted to one another that they sleep with their tails intertwined.
