I am not a huge fan of flowers but I do love watching pretty flowers and take pictures of them. My mum on the other hand is quite an addict, she would squeal with joy whenever she sees bright, beautiful ones (so imagine the excitement when we went to Holland in the tulip season!).
Anyway, she started planting some flowers in our minuscule front garden and one of the flowers that she planted was this flower called Wijaya Kusuma. I’ve never heard of it and I wasn’t really interested in it until the day it blossomed.
The smell of the flower was so intoxicating! The whole house smelt so lovely. The funny thing about the flower is that it only blossoms in the night time, starting around 7 PM and stops at midnight. So it was really exciting to see this “Midnight Queen” blossomed during the night.
I’ve seen it three times now blossoming and each time was always full of excitement (red: the whole house getting giddy, going outside and taking pictures!). I can’t wait for the other buds to grow!
Have you seen this flower?
