The Brahma kamal, or botanically Saussurea obvallata, in my backyard. The flowers bloom late in the evening, and shrivel within a few hours. It’s sighting is considered lucky and the plant has it’s home in the Himalayas. A heavenly smell, and it’s sight an overwhelming experience. The leaves in the backround are betel leaves 🙂
