Astonishing Nature: Watch Flowers Unfurling

This time-lapse video makes me want to run out and water all my flowers. The solo dance of a flower as it gracefully unfurls, pops, explodes, curls, or waves, while becoming fully formed is quietly astonishing. It reminds us that flowers, from the robust to the delicate, in myriad forms and colours, are miraculously alive, gleaming and full of life. Whether vegetable or ornamental, flowers are where it all begins: the fireworks before the mature seed, which begins the dance all over again.
