Anxious anticipation - Thursday bud opening

Well this Friday Fabulous Flower is sure taking long enough, but that is just the way with nature. The big flower bud shown yesterday is opening, so TPP is quite anxious.  And a thunder storm deluge had better not ruin this for us no option gardeners; it's the only flower TPP is going to get, at least this year.  The perianth is forming an upright cylinder  about 8 inches tall, and the outer 3 perianth parts are folding down.  Clearly the flower will be white, and big!  The anticipation is killing the author, but today is Thursday, so tomorrow is the day.
