Last year Mario gave us a gift of a flowering plant that he adores. He planted it in the ground and checked it often for evidence of flowers to come. It took an entire year and now the flowers are here. The fragrant flowers last only one day and about every other day or so, new flowers appear. This morning I saw the new unopened flowers and hurried to the camera and take pictures.
I was surprised to see the flowers opening right before my eyes. One petal at at time would pop open.
These flowers are exquisite!
I watched and waited for the entire flower to open.
The plant has been blooming for about two weeks. I am unsure how long it will bloom so I am sure to visit the plant often and observe and smell nature's lovely creation.
