The end of a phase. - Bakawali

Bakawali flower buds decided to bloom the same night on 11th of April 2014.  We didn't take the pots inside to view the blooming process. However, the night earlier, we did take one small pot in, enjoying the fragrance of one blooming bakawali.  When all the five flowers bloomed the following night, we went out once a while to view the beauty and fragrance. The bakawali giveaways kept by Farah our eldest daughter in Jitra also bloomed the same night. And so did another plant kept by Siti in Bangi.  I suppose plants talk to their siblings and plan for blooming surprise at three different locations.

I took pictures the next morning, 
when flowering process was all over. 
The stalks limped, 
by sheer pull of gravity.

After a week, the whole flower from stalk to petals dry up.
 It would be a matter of time before the whole thing drop off 
as residue of beauty and exotic fragrance.
