The pot and the fence post give this picture a nice perspective. It puts the flower in proper context and gives you some comparisons for size. Wish i could see the rest of the plant, Does the flower stick up very far above the plant?
Faith, the bloom begins about 16″ above the ground and about 6″ above the plant. 🙂
P.S. Unfortunately the bloom is wilting. 😦 Otherwise i would send you pics.
