That is a wonderful photo!! I just bought one of these from Ginkgo Gardens in DC to grow in my apartment. It has some buds–I hope my flowers look this beautiful!

The blurred bud in the back looks like a lion monkey’s head peaking from behind the Japanese Toad Lily. 😉

Kenneth, I hope your buds become just as beautiful as these flowers.
