In the garden

Time lapse photography has always intrigued me. You know, those fabulous scenes from a David Attenborough nature show where you get to see the development of a seed to a tree in the space of a few seconds.

Well, this ain’t anything like that, but I did think it would be interesting to see the growth of my zinnias from mature seedlings to flower………


20150115-163227.jpgI’ve been taking the photos morning and evening, except where inclement weather precluded a pic (I love you lots, but not enough to get drowned in rain storms!!), for about a week.

It’s fun seeing the way the flowers develop, isn’t it? They grew so much in the heat. And now they look like this.

It would have been fun to do it as a time lapse, but this is the next best thing. Hope you enjoyed it too!

    I love zinnias! They volunteer in my garden each year and I get such a charge out of them. 🙂

    Neat! The reading challenge button reminded me of several books I read in the past year by Liane Moriarty – I hope that’s her name. “What Alice Forgot” was the first one I read and then I proceeded to read every book she’s written. All were excellent but different – there’s no need to read them in order. I hope I didn’t already write this recommendation earlier but if I did, I did.

    Loved your time lapse. We do the same thing with our quilting project. Only they seem to be always filmed in slow motion.
