Watch those flowers open

Last week was my birthday and I received a very neat joint gift from my daughter and son and my husband.  It was a Time Lapse Plant Camera.  I have tried a few time lapses and they are pretty amazing.  I haven’t worked out all the kinks yet, but I want to share the two that I have attempted.  It won’t take you long to view them because the longest one is only 15 seconds.

Here is a photo of my beautiful orange iris:

And here it is opening!!!!  I set the camera up so that it would take pictures every 5 minutes and it started taking pictures at 7am and I stopped it at 4pm.  (If you look closely you can see the rain.)

Here is a photo of a bunch of my Siberian irises:

And here they are opening!!!  It was a little too shady but if you look closely and focus on just one bud it looks like magic.
