Bud to Bloom


Buds wait for warmth when unfolding is safe.
They seem comfortable waiting for their mysterious
future. There is a plan unfurling. They stay put. 
Bloom happens. It always does. Every time. 
I see what these buds will be.
So does he, with me. 

Grape


Scarlet Trillium


Wisteria


Hosta


Tulip

Kathleen, those are amazing, but I especially like the last one. I'm really impressed with your macro skills!

I love Tulip and "Grape". All the images are lovely.

I love them all and especially -- Wisteria -- it is one of my very favourite trees. We don't have them in Calgary -- too cold winter, too short summer -- but on the coast, they're spectacular!

Thanks for hte beauty on this morning where some of Thursday night's snow still covers the ground!

This is beautiful! I never thought to examine and photograph the garden's buds before. How wonderful what God will bring forth from each of these beginnings.

Funny. I've never thought to appreciate the bud before. The bloom is always what I look for. The buds I always pass right over. Overlooked yet hold so much potential.
