What a beauty! I think I might have a new favorite.



When it started to open, it looked weird and wacky (like Phyllis Diller) and had a bad shape and big green splotches on most of the petals.

Then it gradually took on a much prettier form and started losing most of the green.

Like that! I use to love watching Phyllis Diller and Bob Hope! With all those flower petals kind of reminds me of her crazy hair!
