Today I have another beauty form my garden to share. I love having a closer look at each flower as it opens, a treat afforded to me by digital photography.
We've had a few pink petunia flowers open on the little seedlings, so with anticipation I have been waiting for this deep purple bud to unfold. Early morning two days ago this is how it looked. I thought it was going to open that morning, but it didn't. It stayed looking like this all day.
Then yesterday morning the action began. Both the photo above and below were taken around 8am.
The photo above, just an hour later. Notice the pollen-containing anthers are just beginning to open.
|Friday 12 noon|
Another three hours later and pollen is spilling everywhere. The flower is more of a crimson/pink than purple, very lovely and appearing to change according to the light.
Another view and a new bud with a beauty of it's own.
|Saturday 12 noon|
Still looking gorgeous in today's sunshine. Such a huge flower for a tiny plant.
|Saturday 12 noon|
And to finish, a favourite from 12 noon today. I am amazed at the intricate beauty God puts within every small flower, just glorious.
