Heather's Rose with stamen

I had a thought that stamen could be added to the Heather's Rose before the first round. Here's an example, with the yellow stamen added before the first round of 6 dc.

Before starting the first round, 7 ch then sl st back along the ch, 7 ch then sl st back along the ch,this forms two stamen. Then do the first 3 dc of the first round. Fold the stamen forward so you can do the other 3 dc on the other side of the stamen. This will make the stamen sit in the middle of the 3rd round of internal petals. Well, I think it looks pretty, if I do say so myself! I'm still working on how to explain the folded internal flowers, I hope to share the pattern with you very soon!
