    So pretty - it looks like it should have a fragrance, even if it doesn't.

    the right one fully opened yesterday and the left one today. Does it take to to develop scent? I'm just doing cart wheels that it bloomed! My Pot. and other Lc didn't. I don't know why. They were chilled at the same time this spring.
