closeup, topview, of a bracket of flower buds

Tintinnabula

The name means “bell set,” which is what this little cluster of buds reminds me of–like little, round jingle bells (rather than the usual bell shape).

I went back soon afterwards for a shot of the flowers. (I think it was only a day later, no more than two.) But they had already opened and started browning, so this was suprisingly transient.

I like these buds better anyway.
