A most beautiful flower.....

This is what it looks like before it opens....nondescript

About a month ago, a friend gave me a cutting for my garden.  She said that it was a very rare ginger and the flower had a lovely perfume.  You can imagine my utter joy and astonishment when this magnificent flower emerged.  It is one of the most beautiful flowers I've ever seen and the perfume is  wonderfully heady.   I simply had to cut the flower and bring it inside so that I could enjoy both the flower and the perfume that wafts through the house.

My arrangement
And this is what it opens out to.....Mother Nature at it's incredible best!
