Friday Video: Flowers in Bloom

Friday, July 18, 2014

Isabella reporting,

No history today - only beautiful flowers, fit for a mid-summer day. Madrid-based nature photographer David de los Santos Gil took over 50,000 photographs of flowers to create this time-lapse sequence of blossoms bursting into bloom. There's an entire garden of flowers here: lillium, hibiscus, carnations, orchids, dandelions, lilies, daisies, alstroemeria, peonies, and nigella damask. The accompanying music is by Roger Subirana. Truly breathtaking!

Thank you for sharing. In a world so torn apart by tragedies and atrocities, I find it calming to return to beautiful basics like this.

This was lovely. And I agree with Genevieve, a soothing alternative to bolster one's spirit with all the sad news making headlines.

And lots of iris, as well! :D
