    hi folks,
    a one day bloomer with a fantastic fragrance, something like " vanilla icecream with fruits pickled in rhum, supported by a breeze of fresh laundry in a rose garden...."

    cheers,

    This may be just a one day bloomer, but it sounds like it puts on quite a performance in that one day. The pure white petals look almost crystalline and the I love that gold/yellow color. Very unique! AL

    So very beautiful. Looks like it is sprinkled with silver glitter.

    I suppose the flowers are quite small ; that crystalline look is usually when there is a lot of magnification ? But I love the sound of that fragrance.

    My wife and I were having a discussion the other day, and she asked what special hoiliday we should plan to celebrate my 80th birthday - just over a year away - I said that maybe I'd like to go to the Phillipines, taking a big empty suitcase....this would be one of the things I'd like to put in it.
