Flower of the day

Sweet honey alike fragrance: Stephanotis flower.

‘Stephanotis floribunda syn. S. jasminoides is a species of flowering plant in the family Apocynaceae, native to Madagascar. Growing to 6 m or more, it is an evergreen woody climber with glossy, leathery oval leaves and clusters of pure white, waxy, intensely fragrant tubular flowers’. (Wikipedia)

You are missing the fragrance

This Fenestraria specie (don’t ask which one! 😉 ) originates from Namibia and Namaqualand in South Africa. Beautiful to look at but you miss the extra-ordinary sweet/fruity fragrance; a feast for your nose .. Flower is fully open during a few hours in the afternoon.
