Doryanthes Excelsa: Gymea or Spear Lily: emerging bud

From the crepe-like outer layer, the smooth bud emerges. This photo looks like I might have compressed the file a tad too much - mea culpa.

Gorgeous.

Hasn't the weather been odd, sweltering yesterday today and tomorrow but cold snap expected tomorrow.

This flower is very mysterious.

My God it looks like it's massive! When it's all the way bloomed - can you put something by it for perspective? I'd be interested to see!

I don't know how you control yourself. I'd be up on the ladder teasing those petals open. I'm not a patient gardener!
