Yesterday one of the Stargazer lily buds was beginning to open. I figured I'd take pictures of it in different stages of development like the ugly duckling becoming a swan. So first picture taken at
I would go out and check it every half hour. Nothing. Then I would wait every hour and check it. Nothing. All day long I went out and checked that ugly duckling. NOTHING. Finally went to bed at 11:00 thinking that this better not happen in the middle of the night because I would be a bit miffed. Got up this morning at 6:00 and looked out. Swan. RATS!!
There is another bud that's ready to open. Maybe this time I'll stay up all night sitting outside with my camera waiting for the magic to unfold,..... but don't count on it.
