I was just curious to find out how long it takes for a flower to bloom. For this oleander, the time it took to bloom was quite long, testing my patience. Unable to wait further, I finished the shoot at about 95% of the bloom. Just watch..

I was guessing an hour and 39 minutes based on the times in the first and last frames. Although I did not notice them for a long time myself.
