That Special Flower

Originally uploaded by desireux.

I was really lucky to witness the blooming of the Epiphyllum flower last night. It's my lab mate's plant and we were all very excited because it was the first flower for the 3 year old plant, and for most of us, it was the first time seeing the flower live. So, this special flower took about 2 hours to open fully and then lasted for a few hours before it closed again. The flower is very beautiful and its sweet scent is quite strong too. Now, we'll wait and see if it will bear fruits. I hope it does, it will be another exciting event!
