You May Already Know this, But... Cool Tip
We have had very cool nights lately, and the blooms are not opening normally. I have gone out up to five times for a very few that I wanted to photograph. And somtimes a very pretty group is spoiled by one bloom not quite opening.
Yesterday, I noticed that several of them were very slowly opening, and on a whim, I reached over and very gently moved petals into place. Bless goodness! It worked! If there is resistance, stop, you might tear it, but I did it again today, and it worked beautifully. Inca Prince, Medici Palace, Bear Claws, qhite a few of them.
As I said, I am sure the great photographers already knew this, but it was a neat discovery for me, and I thought I would share it with you in case you didn't know this.
