The Bud: Neomarica gracilis


The Bud: Neomarica gracilis (Neomarica gracilis)

This is the bud, it worked its way, bigger and bigger all day long. I kept leaving my superbowl company to check if it was unfurling. Pretty reliably blooms next day at sunrise.

It looks like a white flame..sweet...I was rooting for the Saints to win...lol..I would still have been leaving in such a tight win! You would have had company watching for this lovely flower to unfurl...exciting!

Thanks TT. :-)

I thought it resembled a flame too! I had to take a drive home to check on this bud. :-) I was glad the Saints won as well, and I don't watch football much.
