    I don't mean to hijack your thread, but I wonder why nobody has not re-made the Gordon Dillon.

    Cathy - it's a very cool bloom, and you know that a lot of blooms change color (fade or deepen) as they open and age. Hang on and see what happens....

    I know it's going to be an awesome bloom - those clear, clean spots and the apparent substance are already very titillating( ref Martha's post).

    Personally, have to agree with several of the other posters, Cathy --- that is a cool looking flower!
