A Little More Slow Unfolding

I wish I could communicate to you how crazy exciting this slow blooming is for me!  Every morning now I jump out of bed and head out to record the progress.  I think 9663 will have open flowers tomorrow.  When I passed by it 40 minutes after I drew it this morning the little bloomletscwere standing up straighter already.  I don't think 9664 is going to make it even though it's trying.  Something evidently snapped off its first bloom shoot.  Today I dragged a couple of 6 ft long fallen branches to form a kind of barricade to nudge hikers and dogs to stay out of the area where they're growing.   Yesterday a dog off its lead loped over to where I was drawing and almost stomped all over the plants.
