queen of the night

The photos above are of a fragrant flower called Queen of the night or Raa Kumari that blooms only at night. The photos were taken the morning after, so the flowers are past their best. It is a lovely sight and these flowers are at the entrance to my house on the farm in Godagama, Meegoda. I often return home at night and I am presented with this pleasant sight. I believe this plant blooms at least once a month all year round.
