    Default an update...

    It seemed like it was about to explode, but I think it has slowed down because I am watching it like a hawk. I 'told' it that I will stay away for a couple of days if it will hurry up and open...lol!

    Here is an updated photo. This was taken on Sunday.

    Oh wow! That's really neat looking! It definitely looks like an alien... I'd expect to see those leaves wiggling around like octopus arms!! I'm really curious what the bloom is going to look like!!

    Hurry up!

    Cool Shay's gutter mind...

    Ok, I can't help but make the comment... the spike on that looks a little... ummm... perverse.

    But it's cool that it's getting closer to blooming!!
