during my summer holidays from elementary school, i was supposed to do a drawing every day showing the growth of a “morning glory” flower i planted in the spring. it was a combined science and art project.
i always drew the entire made-up 6-week record of the flower growing two days before school started at the beginning of september. my drawings would end up showing a bigger, more beautiful and impressive flower than actually grew in real life. a big bloom would show up suddenly in my drawings on august 30th or 31st.
one year, my flower died because i forgot to water it. i did the same kind of drawings anyway.
