Doryanthes Excelsa: Gymea or Spear Lily, Part 5



This is the bud about two weeks ago - and its still not opened further. The wait is maddening.

Since its still not opened, I might post some closer shots to show the interesting colours the bud has, that are difficult to show when it is backlit - perhaps next post?

Oh Lavender I am so glad you're back. I love your serial posts - watching the birds hatch - now waiting for the flower to bloom. So fun!

I don't know what an "diea" is but the idea is good ;)

diea - a down under idea - no worries Mate!

I can see the colours indeed. I think it will be a fiery flower that will shatter blogworld's record of the biggest opened jaws saying WOOOOOOW!

This is exciting. Good things come to those who wait, for things like this.

... looks most impressive though... what happens when it DOES eventually open up..? Does it go off like a hydrogen bomb or something (well anything's possible in Australia, land of the bum-biting redback!!)
