It is time.
The brief shining moment of time in the knot garden.
It began like this, April 4, 2010.
One week later it was this…
…then came this…
The ascension to the peak…
…results in a glorious climax of blooms.
Like the purest feathered wings of a rare bird, briefly unfurled in its aerial climb to the sun…
…the symphonic cymbals clash together in the crescendo finale…
…until next year.
The players in this epic are Tulipa viridiflora ‘Spring Green’ and Paeonia ostii ‘Phoenix White’, in Chinese ‘Feng Dan Bai’.
