Doryanthes Excelsa: Gymea or Spear Lily: "The Bloom-ening"

Wandered out the back door to check on our bud last Wednesday - and whadda ya know? But of course the shy little moppet wants to bloom facing away from me. Very well then, you want to play hard to get - then I just get my 'long nose' lens and shoot you from below.

You cant hide from my powerful zoom! But you can surprise me with how pink the lily itself is. Wont it be a sight when they have all emerged?

Oh my, it's almost like something prehistoric, it's so big and thick and dense. And trying to get away from you? Ha! It's no match for Lavender!

Such a monster plant, and then when it comes to blooming it goes all shy on us. Hooray for zooms!...
