I used to think something was wrong with them because they were such late bloomers compared to all the other ones in our neighborhood.
Until I realized they weren't exactly like all the others. I love the luxury of having them in several of our rooms tucked into glass wall pockets.
This is the view from my second story window of them about a week ago. The darker parts had not yet opened.
They sure know how to attract attention.
Some for my kitchen.
