In not just a few cases I do like the bud development much more over the final blossom - actually the development from buds to blossom and then the fading processes fascinate me.
The Giant Onion (in my collection) is a good example.

Thanks, at first when I saw the one on the first picture, I though it was a completely different flower from the blooming one.
