Buried Treasure

Below are photos of ferns and some kind of lilly that are thriving close to the ground, well away from the sunlight.

Shaded by the flowering plants that are up to 6 feet tall, they can exist because they don't like full sunlight. This is called a symbiotic relationship. The ferns and lilly could not grow in this space if the bigger flowered plants weren't there to protect them form the sun.

I like to think there is room for all kind of musicians, all kinds of music. In the Western musical world, isn't it amazing that with only 12 notes there are hundreds of different genres?

How do you think the relationship between the ferns and the flowers is like music. How is it like the music business?
