Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature. – Gerard de Nerval
Don’t look now, but there was a time when I used to document every bloom and every seed that grows in my garden. I even dreamed of writing about it, describing every bloom, how long it took for one particular plant to grow and surprise you with that lovely bloom after nurturing it with your heart and soul. And always, the pleasure of seeing it transform before your eyes and the joy you feel after long days of wait is worth a thousand smile on your face. I remember taking these shots with my old Pentax Optio camera while recuperating from a life-changing ailment almost three years ago. It’s my Amazon Lily, from bud to bloom.
