Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

Yes, buds are lovely too ... and in fact as they look beautiful too as they open up slowly to let petals out.., bit by bit...

Your buds are beautiful! I love them because they are a sign of what's to come. Anticipations is as much fun as the show itself.

Is exciting finding new buds and the anticipation of the flowers to come.

Hi Jennifer~~ Yes, buds are beautiful as you so skillfully pointed out. This is a good reason to live in the moment. Don't wait to enjoy the flowers, enjoy the blooms first.
