Hyacinth time lapse

Last week Hanneke bought some hyacinths in the supermarket. We took this timelapse video of 2 of them flowering – unfortunately the blue one decided to attack the pink one ;) We set up the camera to take a photo every 10 minutes for about 2 days. The photos are played back at a rate of 15 images per second.

If we were to do this again, we would probably just choose one plant and hope it didn’t grow wonky!

    Ay, ay, ay, (common Mexican expression of dismay…similar to “tsk, tsk, tsk” or “Oh..my!…”)Ay..Ay..Ay..Paul,… Men always expressing themselves in violent terms!…The Blue hyacinth did not “ATTACK” the pink one!!! It fell in LOVE with it!!! It was so passionately attracted by the brilliant beauty of its pinkishness!!! LOL…LOL…LOL..poor blue hyacinth..it just couldn’t help itself. Don’t you know blue is for boys?! The romantic story is obvious!!!…LOL…LOL..LOL..ROFL…
    Scientifically though, could it be that the sunlight was stronger on the pink side and the blue one was just chasing it? I like my first theory though…LOL…LOL…LOL…I am just a romantic young girl a heart…LOL…LOL…ROFL….Thank you for sharing this beautiful sequence. Now let’s put some music to it. Ha!..LOL..LOL…
