Artist's Description

..the first bloom of summer 2010/2011
…the Night Blooming Cereus… or Moon Flower… or Queen of the Night…

…this magnificent flower blooms for one night only, for about 6hrs, and emits the most thickly sweet perfume…. (..and as i was already up at daybreak, i decided to try to capture the final moments of this amazing flower before it wilted in the morning sun – the first bloom for this summer, 2010/11)

A youtube video i found of it’s short but spectacular life…

…just wonderful!!!
