Thanks, ML! 👍I wasn't expecting the flower to open till well into the New Year but it has grown much quicker than anticipated!

That really does look like a bird's head Balcony.

Thank you, Lindak. It does, doesn't it? I don't know how long the flower will last - it's now 8 days old - but I hope it lasts at least a couple of weeks! I thought the flowers were bigger but perhaps as it's the very first it is smaller & next year they will be bigger & more prolific. I'm taking photos quite often!

Well, Balcony, it certainly is a very special plant to have. It's really lovely.
