    Thanks Al, another spike has one open in the last few hours. Its amazing to watch them slowly creep open! On the central spike, there is what looks like a peloric bloom-it looks like two buds stuck together. Should be interesting!

    Jordan, aren't you glad he said "purty" instead of "purdy"? Otherwise you might have been purty annoyed! Purty good of him, I'd say!
