56 Minutes

By ChiliMan
Ade, you mentioned the bottom of the vase yesterday. I’ve uploaded the less cropped shot as a V2 behind yesterday’s pic Smile

Ann (EAS), the Seven Sisters roses have a lovely rosy scent Smile

-----

Now then, people, this happened a couple of nights ago in the driveway. Such a treat to have these bloom. For those of you who know the Keng Hwa in 160 Minutes , this recent one took only 56 minutes from Pic 1 to Pic 8. And is about twice the size (14cm-ish across). Taken handheld in situ with flash.

The timings for the 8 shots are:

9.29pm
9.38
9.41
9.46
9.49
9.53
10.01
10.25

-----

Mick, I would’ve included the French maid in yesterday’s shot but she was out getting a new pair of them black fishnet stockings. Timing, huh? Bah.

Wow, this is terrific. I have never heard of a Keng Hwa flower before. (I have learned a heck of a lot since joining EPZ). Excellently photographed and presented. Great work.

A great idea and really well presented - how on earth did you manage to keep still for the whole 56 minutes, weren't you getting cramp?? Smile

A real pleasure to find I get to make this the 30th "click" for a truly beautiful image. Glad those Roses have a glorious scent. There's no place in my world for a Rose without Tongue

Nah, it's always the same ones so no fitting required. They get torn quite often. No idea how. Now then...I must look up this word..."gentleman"...

I am totally chagrined and humbled Andrew, this is the second time tonight I've returned to an upload I viewed and commented upon, only to find that - for some strange reason - I haven't actually done so Sad Old age is a curse, but it does beat the alternative Grin
Now then I have to commend you for having the idea to do this, the ability to carry it out so superbly, and to present your results so brilliantly, how nice that the Keng Wha is in such a hurry, made the task a bit easier I guess, though not given you time for a cup of tea, or whatever other beverage may be your choice, between shots!

When we moved from Houston to Austin, I brought three large epiphyllums with me - they bloomed constantly, and always at night. Then almost suddenly, one of the plants started to bloom at noon during the day. It attracted some moths, and I wondered if it was some new behaviour from the plant as they have no natural pollinators in the area. Love the progression of the opening bloom.
