It finally bloomed

I slept in a chair in our living room part of last night due to my cold, didn't notice any improvement there either. BUT when it became light out this morning, I was greeted by a nice surprise, the peace lily in the dining room was blooming.

I am fascinated by these curious flowers. They shoot up out of the plant's base, they are tightly wrapped and then unfurl to reveal a satiny hood and the bumpy, yellow stamen. Sometimes they last for weeks, which is probably determined by the care they are given around here.
