My New Adenium Plant With Its First Flower!

I can't remember exactly, but I think it was about a year ago that I bought 3 baby Adenium plants from the nursery. The plants at that time were about 4 - 5 inches tall. The lady boss told us that these baby plants were grown from seeds and it will take a longer time to flower. The plants were not tagged and the colour of their flowers unknown.
I love Adenium but somehow my Adenium plants don't seem to do well. Someone once adviced me not to pay too much attention to them. One had died, another is struggling to stay alive but one is looking healthy and growing well. So whenever any of the plants flowered, I get excited and overjoyed!
One day, I noticed a little bud on this plant (no photo to show the bud), and I hoped the flowers will be different from those in my garden.
Ta da! Presenting to you my first bloom of my Adenium plant! I am so glad that it is different from the other Adenium flowers in my garden.
I think after this flower, I should re-pot the plant into a bigger pot.
Here are my other Adenium plants in my garden.
A multi layered Red Adenium on the left and a single layered pink Adenium. The pink petals are longer and narrower than the new flower.
This newly opened Adenium flower has single layer round and broader petals with white shades in the centre. I hope more flowers will be on the way and looking forward to the other plant to flower too.

Linking to Floral Bliss.

You who are trying to be justified by the law have been

alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace.

For through the Spirit we eagerly await by faith

the righteousness for which we hope.

(Galatians 5:4-5, New International Version-NIV)
