    Thanks for all your nice comments. It was a real surprise for me to see this one bloom. I thought it would never happen and then poof there was the bud. The only problem is that the second flower (from the same stem) opened upside down. I was extra careful during gestation not to reorient the plant because of this problem, but it happened anyway. OH well!
