Triangles in nature

Drawing connections
Saw this at a florist nearby. I see banksias often but not like this with its stems of triangles and dome shaped head. My Google image search reveals this is called a Banksia baxteri or Banksia bird’s nest.

It looks hardy; as if it would remain this way for a few weeks. But it didn’t. The day after I drew it, the leaves curled up and the head looked a bit ‘balder’. Maybe intense staring caused it to wilt.

Why don’t things last? Oh well.
