Tuscan Olive Tree on Bunaken Island

Not only the dragon fruit tree, but our "Tuscan Olive Tree" growing taller than my hight.
3 years later. (2 years on Bunaken)

1 year old tree.

White Dragon Fruit Cactus

Dragon Fruit Flowers only bloom at night and only last for one day. I was waited for it and saw them very ready yesterday.

then... last night all flowers came into bloom!
They are large and beautiful and also has sweet but nice tropical aroma.
Although such a beautiful flower, it's withered before 9:30am.
pity but maybe get ready to next step (having fruit)...?! 
Cross fingers!
