Thanks for sharing that. I've done a lot of gardening and I always wonder how much awareness plants have.
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." -- C. S. Lewis

Although I wouldn't go so far as to say that plants all have souls or gods living inside of them, I do think that we greatly underestimate the intelligence and "humanity" (for lack of a better word) of plants and single-celled organisms.
