Travel Theme – Fragrant

Orchids - lady of the night.web

‘Lady of the Night’ – a prolific orchid that produces a jasminelike fragrance only at night.

I look forward to the blooms twice a year. Fortunately, it produces its’ 2nd bloom of flowers during November and December which lends itself to a fragrant outdoor setting on my lanai. There are 7 potted plants out on the lanai strategically place for when someone passes or sitting near one.

“Plants that wake while others sleep, timid jasmine buds that keep their fragrance to themselves all day, but when the sunlight dies away let the delicious secret out to every breeze that roams about”.

Among the pale white heart shaped flowers of ‘Lady of the Night’ are these fuchsia pink orchids. No fragrance but their beauty screams a silent fragrance.

    • I think you’ve hit upon the perfect word to describe them – intoxicating.
      They are sweet and sultry in their scent. I enjoy sitting and smelling them.
      I will have to look into getting a primrose. I can then call my garden a fragrance garden.
      Thanks … xoxo
