This was about 3 weeks ago.
Below is today.
It is growing about 3 inches per day, everyday.
There is a large bud on the very top that will open soon. Tomorrow?
I'm concerned that the stalk might blow or fall over so, with help, I put a safety line on it.
I have started preparation drawings for a painting of this phenomenon.
