Thanks so much! I will say I am sick of this one though! It has been my srceensaver for a couple of years now. I was so enthralled with this bloom. It is so unique. But seeing it all day long everyday, I so need to figure out how to change my screensaver. There are so many cool flowers in this world and to think I have now even seen that many of them.
