Morning Star

The CC has finished its unfurling of its petals. The stamen and pollen are now exposed ready for some pollination. It is a spectacular star shape this morning, with the red petals opened like a windmill. They are almost Translucent so the Red shadows darken the centre. It stands out compared to the leaves behind it. Its an insects eyed view :)

The flower looks ethereal with the light shining through.
An elderly friend gave me one of these plants this past summer. It has bright red flowers.
My mum had 2 very large plants...one in your colour, and one in pink. Everything seemed to bloom beautifully for her. She had a very green thumb :)
