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.
