Bud to flower

I remember as a child , whenever I saw a bud somewhere, I used to keep staring at it for hours to see it blooming into flower. I always thought that when we sleep, these buds get up and turn to flowers.

So when everyone slept, I used to slowly go the plant ( so that it won’t know I’m there) and I used to keep looking at it .. I never got to see one, obviously !!!

I used to hide and suddenly look at it to see if I can catch it while blooming .. Hahahaha.
