Flowers from Thomas Blanchard on Vimeo.

Fresh buds of amaryllises, lilies, and daffodils, set in front of vintage wallpaper, bloom in seconds in this timelapse, knitted together neatly from almost 10,000 photos shot in 5K RAW. France-based video artist Thomas Blanchard, who's previously made films featuring a [psychedelic abyss](http://pinwheeling flowers) and a stop-motion woodland, worked for four months to take meticulous photos every eight-to-ten minutes of over 20 different flower species.


"I created this video simply because I love nature," he tells The Creators Project. "I always found the flower's timelapses fabulous, but most of the time they are made with a black background. Then I told myself to make a beautiful flower's timelapse with coloured and vintage backgrounds. To me, the 60's / 70's is the most representative period for the flowers. This is a way to pay tribute to them." Below, see the hypnotic results of his labor.
