Award Shortlist   

A Blooming Performance.

By Brilane
I thought that I would try a presentation that would illustrate the stages from bud to flower of a Forest Cactus. There were 4 - 5 days between each stage, which made this the longest time, to date, that I have taken to finalise a picture for upload.

This pot plant usually bears 4 full displays of blooms every year, the final one being, usually, at Christmas/New Year.

My thanks for all your interest in my photos,and I hope that you will find this one interesting.

Brian.

A very dilligent photographer Brian . Smile A great lot of blooming cactus . I know you were trying to show which came first but to me the black numerals are slightly distracting . I suppose it would look fine in a botany book . If it were mine and I hung it on the wall I'd like it just plain please xxx

Thank you for your comments.

Wow! This is nice!

I've been doing something similiar with my flower pics, but I'm making little movie slideshows with mine. I never thought to present it the way you have, which is brilliant!
