Queen of the night

 
Mum accidentally knocked this flower off its stem (leaf?) and put it into a small jar feeling rather apologetic that it had not yet bloomed.

Coming into the hallway after returning from a dinner, she noticed a strong yet delicate fragrance. Queen of the Night had opened up and beautifully. But, not for long. The next morning, it had returned to its closed and restive state.

Short-lived but worth appreciating.
