|We found out that it was to bloom quite by accident as we took some out of town guest to the gardens for an evening out!|

|Wer had Ethiopian food! It was delicious:)|
We drove home disappointed that Izzy was still not blooming by the time we left the city. Then at 8:30 that evening we finally got a message that the flower was blooming! We packed up the car and drove into the city, rushing to see Izzy before the crowds. The gardens had promised to remain open until 1 am once the flower bloomed since it blooms for a very short time.
|There were docents there giving information about the flower and yes we could even get a slight whiff of the corps smell.Sorry about the quality of the photo|
|on a positive note my orchids bloomed this week as well:) I love orchids.|
