Rosie's Moonflowers. Thursday And Friday, September 9th And 10th, 2010.

Thursday, September 9. Rosie sets up shop in the garden to get this moonflower bud opening. It didn't. Friday afternoon, I caught this one. It's the same bud as before. My Nikon CoolPix5100 does time lapse at the minimum of 30 seconds. The fastest part of moonflower-unfurling is in the first 30 seconds. For taking a time lapse video of a moonflower opening, I'd need something that would capture every 1-2 secs. My neighbors on the south side probably think I'm the Colington Idiot. I imagine each village must have one, and sadly, I fill in for Colington Harbour. I'm out every late afternoon/early evening at the base of the steps bending over, watching. My southern neighbors don't see the camera and tripod in front of me. They don't see my watching a spectacular gift unfurl. They don't see my watching a moonflower open. They only see my ass.
