Brassavola nodosa

Called the Lady of the Night, this orchid, originally from Mexico, emits a “white floral” scent after dark.  It is pollinated by moths.  It belongs to Mark Allison, who thoughtfully texted me when this came into full bloom.

Nice mid-50s Cunard postcard with an artist’s rendering of the original Queen Elizabeth, launched in 1938, but only carried troops until 1946, when it entered regular commercial service.  The artist is C. F. Hopkinson, who actually worked for Cunard as an accountant, according to this posting.
