heliotropism: a diurnal response where plants track the motion of the sun.
Ginger started these plants inside for her garden, and it hasn't gotten quite warm enough to put them outside. Everynight before I go to sleep, I turn them away from the sliding glass doors, and everyday when I come home, they have turned and "grown" towards the sun. In an amazingly geeky bit of trivia, heliotropism was recorded by Leonardo da Vinci in the early 1500's.

About this blog:
"Filatore" was originally created as a way to track the adventures of an Italian deployment back in 2006 (Filatore=Spinner in Italian). Since then, it's morphed a few times, and after a period of relative dormancy, will document our urban existence over the next year.
