Asian Spider Lily in Bloom

Check out this amazing flower, it’s an Asian Spider Lily and blooms very rarely, and only at sunset when it decides to do so.  2016-07-21 18.41.54

My neighbor, Charlie, owns the plant and it’s in a pot out in our garden, where the conditions must have been just right this season for it to decide to produce these delicate blossoms. The fragrance is very light and sweet.  We all stood and watched the blossom open last night around sunset.  It was utterly amazing.  The plant has been in Charlie’s family for over 100 years.
