903. Curaçao’s Lady of the Night

Dama djanochi

muriendo mainta ta

hari maluku.

Dama djanochi

emits its lovely perfume

and dies at daybreak.

By Elis Juliana

When Dama djanochi is in bloom, her beautiful white flowers open for a few hours around midnight and close again in the morning. But you don’t have to stand watch to catch a glimpse of her beauty, simply follow her magnificent scent… She truly is our awesome Lady of the Night.
