A beautiful flower sits on the hard, rough concrete. The marvelous bloom starts in a narrow cylindric shape and then blossoms out into 6 curved petals. The petals appear to be thinner than paper and are the slightest bit fuzzy. There are slight indents in line fashion along the back of the flower and the middle looks like it used to contain nectar, as a golden powder litters the inside of the cone shaped marvel. The beating sun shining against the ivory petals almost caused the flower to disappear and drift away with the wind.
