Time-lapse Aconite flowers opening and snow melting

February 24, 2009

Winter Aconites are tough plants and can survive being buried by snow.

This sequence was filmed in my studio. The snow was taken from my garden and took all night to melt.

The flowers open once the snow has melted and the ‘sun’ (my growlight) is switched on.

The view on Youtube:-

If you know you have a very fast or very slow connection, you may want to change your “Video Playback Setting” in your account to “I have a fast connection. Always play higher-quality video when it’s available.” or “I have a slow connection. Never play higher-quality video.”

To change your playback settings, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to your Account page.
  2. Under “Account” click the “Video Playback Quality” link.
  3. Select the playback setting that makes sense for you.
  4. Click the “Save Settings” button.

I have made an on-line interactive plant finder, identifier and pruning guide web site.  http://www.rightplants4me.co.uk which I hope you find interesting.

It has over 3,600 garden plants, 10,000 photographs plus time lapse sequences and each plant has in-depth plant care and illustrated pruning advice.

The plant database is continuing to grow.  If you have good quality photographs of garden plants that are not not already on the database I’d like to hear from you with an interest of adding it to the collection.
