Clockwise from top left:

A narcissus flower (daffodil); a top view and side view cross-section of a pomegranate; a pomegranate flower about to open; a flowering stalk of asphodel.

What do these have in common?

1. These plants all possess a symmetry of six.
2. All of them are written into the myth of Hades and Persephone.

The number of seeds Persephone eats varies from four to seven. But, taking a cue from nature, I like the idea that Persephone ate six pomegranate seeds, thereby equally splitting time between the world above and the world below.
