. A little wider please,it took it about thirty minutes and it was fully opened
Here she is in all her glory, the plant always looks like it is going to dry up and die at any time,and is really not very pretty.
Look how big when fully opened
And she smelt soooooo good to , nothing like any other flower I have ever smelt.
Well it's been one year and to the exact date and The Queen of the Desert bloomed again ,at midnight and only for one night,and then she's gone, just like that. I posted pictures of her last year and was surprised that this time, not four ,but only one flower appeared and bloomed, I caught it at the right time to and was able to get a few pictures again this year . The plant or leaf is really ugly and you would never expect to see the most beautiful and sweetest smelling flower you have ever seen.I could tell it was opening up because at around eleven thirty , it filled the whole house with a wonderful smell, nothing like you have ever smelt before .So I grabbed the camera and headed out to capture it in pictures again this year.I was not dissapointed. Do you have one ? or have you ever seen one ?I hope you enjoy the pictures, and as I said before , I'll give you a start for your very own , but you have to come and get it . It will be a great addition to you garden area, and a great converstation piece.Next year if there are at least two I am going to try and press one in a book to preserve it , I will read up on how to do it right in the meantime, what do you think?
