I'm not making this up I promise, but this plant is actually called Pigface. They have the loveliest and brightest flowers as well. They come in all sorts of different colours, and they only bloom when the suns out. They close up as soon as the sun begins to set, and sometimes as the sun is going down, half the flowers will be in bloom and the other half, in the shade, will have closed up for the night. They're quite enchanting really.
There is every colour imaginable at my parent's house as well.
I think this one has to be my favourite.

Orange blossom has the sweetest smell I've ever smelt. Coupled with jasmine or maybe palonia tree flowers and the aroma in the air in Spring is extraordinary. I always associate the smell with home, warm breezes and sun drenched days.
