Everyone loves flowers. How could you not? They’re beautiful, colorful, and the perfect way to bring nature into your home. But all too often, we don’t really take the time to stop and smell the roses, or in this case, watch the roses. We usually only notice flowers when they’re already in full bloom, and wind up missing the whole growing process. Here are a few images which perfectly capture these flower buds mid-bloom.

We all know that babies are adorable. Most people can agree that animal babies are the cutest. But did you ever stop and think about how cute baby flowers are? We kind of wish people would give bouquets of buds instead of fully grown flowers so that we could see them at this tender stage.

Have you ever seen a flower in this shade? It’s pretty amazing to see. Not only is the color special, but witnessing such a large number of buds all blooming together is really something special. We’d give anything to be a fly on the wall (or on the flower) for this experience.

These buds are reminiscent of Japan’s sakura trees, otherwise known as cherry blossom trees. They only bloom in the springtime so if you’re thinking of planning a trip, you might want to base your schedule around the blooming schedule of these time-sensitive buds.
In Full Bloom
Flowers are a great way to show that special someone how much you love them. And we can’t imagine a better surprise than waking up to a bouquet full of these pink flowers. This one looks like it’s just at the final stage of budding, and we’re sure it will look even more beautiful once it’s fully bloomed.
