I've spent quite a lot of my life in Vietnam over the past 15 years. I have hundreds of photos and I had the idea of posting one of them every day (or almost every day). Let's see how it goes.
The first one is a Quynh flower (hoa quynh). This one was given to me by a friend who grows them in his garden. They have a wonderful perfume and they only flower at night - the flowers never surviving for more than a few hours. This night we sat around the dining table and watched it opening, then he gave it to me to take home. Another very odd thing about this flower is that it grows directly out of the 'leaf' of the plant which, I guess, is a succulent of some sort. I'm no botanist.
