Late Saturday I was checking out the bud. Swelled up nice and was rather large.
Next mourning it was all open.
The petals were untwisted, and at that point, the flower had the most symmetry.
Tip to tip they measured 5.875"

Then the petals went every direction. So no pics till today.
Maybe they will look more symmetric in the next day or so.
But there is a touch of brown on the backside of bloom.
Those spots never get smaller.



My first flower from flask.

Phragmipedium longifolium





I thought I would include another first.
I call this shot...

Flower with Hand





Don't get too excited.
There are two plants in this 4'' sq. pot.




Tip to tip now is 6.125"
:)

Groucho eyebrows...oh, if it only had a mustache and glasses!
