“You’ve got a beautiful garden here.”
“Oh! Thank you.”
“Wow! They’re so lovely. Summer beauties.”
“Yes. They’re lovely but also strange.”
“Strange. How?”
“They bloom in the midnight under the open.”
“Wow! That’s strange.”
“Yes. I was also told that they have other peculiarities.”
“Like what?”
“You’ll surely find out.”
Sandra found out that not only do they bloom at midnight, but they also glow.

Now that is a flower I’d love to see. Quite spooky, I imagine, at midnight! Nicely done, Thompson.

Hello, Thompson. Your story is a perfect description of Arwaka flower, general name “Epiphyllum oxypetalum.” Arwaka flower is known as the queen of the night flower. This flower is priceless and beautiful. Watching it bloom is considered a sacred experience by many, where it is said to bring luck and prosperity to households who are fortunate enough to see theirs bloom and make a wish. Check it out here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epiphyllum_oxypetalum.

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
