closeup, topview, of a bracket of flower buds


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.
