The calendar says we're officially into spring, but if you are watching the snow fall outside, you might need some encouragement to remind yourself that the season of growing is just ahead. GPhase grew a kidney bean plant from seed in a glass container and recorded it growing over 25 days. This time-lapse video captures its progress in photos taken every 9.5 minutes. It's set to the most appropriate soundtrack: "The Blue Danube" by Johann Strauss.
If you'd like some music that's just as pleasant but more contemporary, enjoy this time-lapse video of eight spinach plants growing for 40 days, set to the song "Spanish Summer" by Audionautix.
