Sansevierias flower - surely not!

O.K. 'Mother-in-Law's Tongue' to you and me.
Or, 'Snake Plant' apparently.
Either way, we have a pretty rare event here according to t'internet.
Has anyone else had a flower on their M.i.L.T.?

Unfortunately the flower was at its best while we were away for the weekend visiting Monet's garden in Giverny near Paris, so this is not a particularly good photograph.
I wonder if Monet ever had a flower on his M.i.L.T.?
(Full report of our trip to follow you'll be surprised to hear)
The flowers drip masses of sticky sap which can attract pests due to the strength of the scent which is 'strong and pleasing' apparently. Don't ask me.
