    LOL! Interesting how differently different noses can respond to the same fragrance.

    Not a bulbo fan, but these photos are fabulous - alas, the deal-maker/breaker for me would be the fragrance!

    Ah ok, I would have been soooo surprised that our sniffing organs can differ that much, lol.
    Btw, the petals aren't so reflexed usually. Hope you get yours into flower!
