Americans have an expression that "A watched pot never boils", meaning the more you watch something the longer it takes. And, I have been watching the garden and like the expression says, the plants had not been growing fast enough. But then... one day there was this burst of flowers.
And Chrissy was right, it has been relaxing to lovingly work at weeding and watching the garden grow. One thing I have noticed is that there is a simple beauty that exists in plants in a garden. As usual click each photo for a better view.
These flowers are from my growing squash crop. One day they just burst forward out of no where.
This one too is sort of peeking through. I could not help but think it was almost like a little child hiding.
When I first took these photos I thought I might be a little over the top regarding the garden. But, I later went back to look at them and the buds had closed. It was then that I realized I had captured a moment in time that existed and then disappeared as the plant moved on to the it's next stage.
