Mystery in the Darkness

Last weekend, a mysterious flower bud made its first ever appearance in my garden. Check out photos of the PVZ wannabe in my post yesterday: PVZ in my garden!!! HELP!!! « Rica Rants & Raves.

Getting out of the car last night, my nose captured a faint rich floral scent in the air.

A few steps away was a fist-sized white flower glowing in the darkness.

The PVZ beast morphed into this stunning beauty!!!

I am going to pluck some “leaves” to propagate this intriguing plant. This will be lovely in our bedroom veranda.

I can imagine taking sips of wine at night with these flowers glowing in my midst. Wow.

Not knowing how long this flower would remain in bloom, I took more photos with a small lamp for backlighting.


Sadly, the flower wilted away in the morning. Now for the long wait…



  1. What an ethereal, lovely thing!
    Any more clue as to its name?

What's on your mind?
