My birthday present has bloomed

A huge flower on a not so big plant. It lasts only a day. Then you have to wait until the next flower.

I never heard of such a flower, but according to the pic you've taken it must be a rare beauty.

Can't believe you've never heard of it!! It is an Ibiscus del Delta, you can find it red or white or pink, not only yellow!
It's definitely beautiful!
