A profusion of petals…
Abound from what started as a tiny seed. With nurturing from nature, a ½” bud blooms, and from its center each petal unfurls and stretches out onto the next, creating layers upon layers. As I slow my gaze, I notice how each petal has its own distinct shape: some broad and rounded, others still slowly uncurling, creating this complete and complex blossom.
