She reigns only for a night. Illustrations of the Queen of the Night
“The beautiful die young”--just like this saying goes, the Queen of the Night cactus blooms only for one night. The elegant white petals, the thick sweet scent that wafts through the air--all but for a night, the blossom charms people with its fleeting beauty.
Opening its blossom in the dark of the night, the cactus indeed deserves the nickname “Queen of the Night”. The gentle scent of the blossom starts wafting in the air the evening before it blooms, inviting people to search the town to find it.
Today, we’re featuring illustrations of the Queen of the Night, a plant that captivates us with its mysterious transient and beauty. Enjoy!
