Springtime around here means flowers either blooming or about to bloom. I wasn’t actually aware of the iris bud in this composition until post. It blends into the stem of the bloom almost as a time lapse, a graph of potential and realization. I love the duality of tightly-packed hardiness and petal-soft delicateness in a flower bud, enveloped in itself like a cocoon until it transforms into colorful splendor.
