Night Blooming Orchid has Bloomed!

 My night blooming orchid finally has bloomed after having it for over ten yrs.! It started to open at midnight last night. This is the first pic at 12:00
This was at 1:45 am
This was at 3:45 am

This was at 5:00 am this morning


And this was at 7:45 am this morning the bloom was already closing! It was large enough to fit inside a punch bowl and fill it up! And the smell was heavenly!

I have been so tired all day, but it was well worth the watching of this bloom take place. My mom's plant has two blooms on it and we hope they bloom together! If not we will be so tired when it does bloom.
Happy Stitching,
Wendy

Wendy I've never seen one before, it's so pretty! I wouldn't have wanted to close my eyes either, for fear I'd miss it! Especially after waiting for 10 years.
