This should be just right to show in full bloom for Christmas & New Year.

Very nice!! The one flower with the most black areas--is that an older or newer flower? Great to have adeniums blooming at this time of year! My grafted obesum "Amethyst" should open its first flower tomorrow or Sat.
Thanks for the Christmas bloom. So nice to see and treat for you I am sure.
All the best.
Mike in answer to your question about the two pics, they are the same plant taken within 2 minuets of each other i just placed a black board behind the specimen and that was the result.
