Helloooooooooo apples!

One of my Echeverias started blooming a few months ago, so I started photographing it. Not well – the plant sits on my kitchen windowsill, a location that makes good photographs challenging because of the lighting. Still, I was fairly consistent about photographing it. The flower stalk kept turning toward the light, so I rotated the plant often. Sometimes I took photos in the evening when the blinds were down so you could see the color of the blooms better (they’re an adorable pink). Oh, and at some point I made a half-hearted attempt to stake the stalk so it would stay upright. I used the only stakes I had – skewers for cooking on the grill. So, please look past that.

Anyway.

This seems like the furthest I’ve ever gone for a bit.

We’re going to do another modern-day flip book, so it looks like you’re watching the stalk grow right before your eyes. You’ll have to scroll fast.

I didn’t use all the photos I had. You’re welcome, haha!

Here’s what the flower stalk looks like right now:

Pretty right? And weird! Here’s the whole plant:

I’m totally charmed by the flowers. It’s been super fun watching this plant bloom.

You know how this works. Which is to say, it only works when you scroll really, really fast.

Ready?

Set.

Scroll!
