Macro Monday: Mid night Glory
This succulent plant blooms around mid night, and closes shortly after. So if you miss it, you miss it.
In Borneo, the Mid night Glory blooms once in a few years and usually only a single bloom. People regard it as an sign of good luck. They will buy the lottery when they see this flower bloom.
A friend holds a party and invites friends especially friends from overseas to see this unusual miracle.
In Australia, however, my brother Joseph's plant blooms numerous flowers often. May be that is why I am enjoying my holiday in the land of the rich and famous.
