“Progression” – Hosta Blossom

“Progression”

“Peculiar I say, how so often the smallest, most seemingly insignificant details later unveil their faces as vital means for progression.” 
― Criss Jami

What struck me about this image of a stem of hosta blossoms was the progression of the flowers along the stem. The bottom three are spent flowers from the previous day, the next two above are in full bloom, and above, new blossoms are forming.

I’ve considered photographing them before, but they have not appealed to me, for some reason. Yet, this time around, I really noticed this pattern of blossoms, progressing up the stem and decided to document it and spend some time appreciating it. The individual blossoms are quite pretty as well, yet seem lost in the space between them.

It’s been cool here the past few days, and the daffodils are still blooming. A handful are still opening. So, I took that as an opportunity to create this image of the daffodil blossom in its various stages of opening.

I’m finding this an interesting exercise, noting that not just the blossom changes but also the angle of the blossom, which starts out low and then moves upward to face the sun.
