I've almost never been so excited in my life! I have waited two years for my first banana plant to fruit and finally, just as I was about to leave town on a trip, my Musa Namwah decided to put out it's first inflorescense. I was somewhat horrified that I might be out of town when the bloom opened, but to my great relief, it mostly waited for my return.  Here is the sequence as it took place:

It will take about six months before these bananas will be ripe to pick and eat but at least now I won't have to worry about it blooming in the winter.
