    This thing only blooms for about a week each year, and as this year I have two macro lenses, I tried to get a few decent images. The rain and constant breeze was a real problem- I had to wait until just the right moment to trigger shots. Here are a few. :D

    Thanks! I also have an upstart 3-ft plant that trails the big one by about a week in it's blooms. They're all gone already 'till next year.
