Twit, you can tell in the pictures that my plants are "shrinking" too as the flowers mature.
Lynn, let me know when it's safe to post the pictures to the database (when it's done being updated).

I like the third one where the flowers are open and looking fluffy, but all are nice. BTW, the flower spikes are soft to the touch. I've been using a finger to spread the yellow pollen around to maximize the seed set.

It's such a unique plant and seems to keep changing throughout the growing season. Thank you to @Twit and @Valleylynn for introducing me to them!

The vine weaving through the fence is awesome! And the shop picture is so calming. Did you find any pots there?

I adore both of those photos Bev. Wonder what the vine is?
What a fun shop to browse through. Repeating Chris's question, did you find a container to bring home? Hurray!
