most nights this the course – drift off and then drift back. then again i had something big to pull me back tonight. this is the image that greeted me this morning – as i rushed off to the day. it was big. is big. and i hoped when i returned i would get a picture. yes. the four AM rain did not hurt it. fairly sure it open after the rain. two images of Poultry In Motion – followed by two more images of Isolde…
to put this in scale – it is about a 10 inch – 25.5 cm bloom.
and it opens flat as a dinner plate. no trumpting, so there is as much front view of the flower as you can hope for.
this is Isolde doing its poly – four petals four sepals thing.
and if one looks closely at the bloom one can tell what the next bud might do. another poly.
