Summertime Splendor

This lovely yellow with white lines is called Summertime Splendor.  This is a huge flower, sometimes growing to 5-6 inches across.  This one is about 5  1/2 inches.  This picture does not show it, but this flower has a green center (called throat).  It also has edges that look like pie crust, it is crimped.  I will try to get a better picture showing the green throat before long.

The below picture was taken today (July 3rd), it is the 2nd flower to bloom, you can see what is called angel dust on the petals and has better formed petals than the FFO.  Look at how the petals are "pie crusted".
