Bc Princess Teresa 'Princess Michiko'
Princess Michiko is putting on a beautiful display this year. The gorgeous flowers are  very fragrant during the day, filling the room with a "white floral" scent with a hint of spice.
The flowers on the left side are not quite as pink, they opened up last. The lion is actually carrying the flowers, since I didn't stake them and they did seem to bend down a bit under the weight.
