What about the standards, Francelle?  They aren't open, but they 
reflex back away from the bloom center.  You can see they are nearly 
straight or flare back in the closeup photo.  The effect of that can 
be seen in the clump photo.  That trait and the skinny horn/spoon 
are the most notable features of the bloom.  The color is sort of an 
odd mix of reddish and blue tones and I grew to like it quite well 
though I have to adjust to it with the first bloom.  The falls could 
indeed be wider, but with all the other things it isn't as 
noticeable as you might expect.
