Balloon Flower

I bought this three weeks ago on sale. 
The best way to buy flowers is when summer is almost over because it become cheap. 
Few days ago I see this flower bloom. It is huge and what made me smile this flower has it's way of protecting the scorching sun. The petals tries to close down make a shadow on the center . Next year 
I am hoping to see this thrive and give more flowers, will see!

                                                                I did some cropping here.

                        MACRO FLOWERS SATURDAY  and TODAY'S FLOWERS
