    Ooo, that book sounds really interesting. And I love the middle stage of the Dogwood blossom, it almost reminds me of a peony before it fully blooms.

    these guys are actually southern magnolia blossoms and in real life they’re huge;) some of the blossoms are the size of dinner plates, no joke. and the book…is very good, if a bit scary.

    Oh, that is magnificent, and yes you were quite patient to take the photographs in stages.
    That book looks really interesting, hadn’t heard of it before.
