    Tim's right - the colors are lovely and dark! Darker than mine, but I'm so happy, I'm not jealous.

    Has the first flower just opened? There was some time between my blooms, but the petals really pulled up within a couple of days of opening - more horizontal than the droopy puppy dog ears they started with - and they twisted a bit more. I'm thinking yours should do the same, but if the first has been open a few days, then that may be their mature stance.

    Great acquisition!

    Cheers. Hoa.
