bud building

this is a seedling that has been blooming for several weeks.   it is a cross of Talon x Wind Frills) x Birdwing Butterfly.  the bloom is in the 8 inch range.  and if you look closely behind today’s bloom you will see not just one, yet another bloom forming.  if you look closely at the base of the bud there is just the beginning of another new bud.  when a plant continues to add new buds – that is referred to as bud building.  if the temperature and weather remain favorable some plants will continue to add buds for several more weeks.  four images
