The cutting I brought back from Orange County almost 3 years ago has grown and grown but refused to give off bloom until this week.
When I spotted the bud on the plant, I worried that I might miss seeing the bloom as I would be going back down. Luckily, the plant has decided to open its maiden bloom for me while I'm still here.
These photos were taken late yesterday afternoon.
And these are taken this morning.
The bloom looks so lovingly delicate!
