FEAST FOR THE EYES! - THE STAR OF BETHLEHEM













A FEAST FOR THE EYES
THE BRAHMA KAMAL (FLOWER OF BRAHMA) OR THE STAR OF BETHLEHEM (SO CALLED BECAUSE OF THE LITTLE POLLEN CRIB WITH THE STAR!) IS SAID TO BLOOM ONCE A YEAR SOMETIME AROUND AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER! CONSIDERED AUSPICIOUS BY MOST PEOPLE THIS LOVELY FLOWER SIMPLY REFUSES TO GROW EVERYWHERE (ATLEAST THATS WHAT I'VE BEEN TOLD!!)
THIS BEAUTY BLOOMS POST 8pm IN THE EVENING AND LOOKS GORGEOUS WHEN IT BLOOMS FULLY AT MIDNIGHT! THE FRAGRANCE IS SCINTILLATING AND COULD ALSO GIVE YOU A HEADACHE IF YOU AREN'T USED TO IT!!
WE WERE REALLY FORTUNATE BECAUSE WE HAVE HAD ALMOST 160 FLOWERS BLOOMING THIS YEAR AND THESE LAST SET OF FLOWERS BLOOMED ON FRIDAY, 3RD DECEMBER!!!
