Another Flower

Another recurring gag. The flower.

Actually I’ve seen photos of sunflowers growing in Antarctica. Along with hydroponic vegetable crops in greenhouses at the research stations. A small crew of people stay in Antarctica through its cold, dark winter months, literally dark. During the six month period I believe only one plane flies in with supplies at the midpoint. To have fresh vegetables during this time the scientist must grow them with simulated sun. I guess Ramen noodle isn’t good enough for some people. 😀
