First bloom Texas Blue Eyes

Remember the Texas Blue Eyes I got last fall and keep in the kitchen window all winter. I moved it to the greenhouse about a week after the scape appeared. Well it has all of two buds on it. This morning it is trying to open. I have not left the heat on in the greenhouse in over a week and the temps are kinda cool out there. So I took it from the table and set in on the floor closer to the heater and turned the heat on, hoping it will open fully so I can collect the pollen.  First image taking around 9:30 this morning and second one at 2 pm
Hasn't opened fully, but I pretty much expected that. At least I was able to collect the pollen from it.
