Brahma's flower

This is a rare joy indeed. Apparently, one heck of a brave/foolish plant decides to flower- get this- once a year, between 8 at night till about midnight. The logistics for it to achieve any sort of reproduction seem mind boggling.
Having said that, we saw this flower last night, and it was Awesome. Its bigger than a lotus, similar in look and feel and totally white. My brother's got some snaps of this, and he's going to send em to me soon- will put them up here as soon as that happens.
Its got a sharp, pleasant smell, and its quite intricate really, and just awfully brave but totally gorgeous.
