In a Vase on Monday - the unique state of being a bud

With Noria Anastasia on my mind,  I have only come across buds today – a yellow one of Crocus, two white ones of Camellia, a pink one of Bergenia cordifolda and many  burgeoned twigs of hortensia, kerria, vinca, magnolia and forsythia. The unique, peerless state of being a bud.

  1. Buds in the plural, not just one bud! Aren't they lovely? The shape and formation of buds are so unique to each type of plant - so fascinating to watch them develop and finally open. You can now have that pleasure from the warmth and comfort of your home :) Thanks for sharing

  2. A lovely collection of buds! Will the Camellia open, do you think? I've never tried cutting one at that stage.

  8. Privind buchetul din primavara trecuta mi-am amintit ca vreau o plantuta noua de camelie ... Cele vechi s-au uscat acum doua-trei veri.
