First Bloom of the Season

Our first bloom of the season opened today, and I have scapes on several others.

This is DOUBLE DOWN from the Breedens, who are local hybridizers near Houston. It partially doubled this time (it almost blends into the petal on the bottom left), but I expect more doubling in the future.

On the first photo, there is a mosquito on the bloom, and in the second, I caught it in flight! I had to take the pictures in the dark before work, but I think they turned out pretty well with the flash.

Great shots, Nate - and the flower is gorgeous - so many buds, too. Now, spring is officially here!

Beautiful and exciting Linda! Good photos...I hope you were as lucky swatting him as you were shooting the mosquitos picture:)

Hurray for the first blooms and very pretty ones at that. I think the night shots look great what with the dark backrounds.
