Night Blooming Cactus Redux




Last weekend we noticed some more blooms on the same cactus getting ready to open, so I attempted to take photos over time. This is all I got- they bloomed at their fullest while I was sleeping. The plant is so big, I think we might get another chance to film it. Here are three photos, one when it was just dusk, and the other two taken at intervals between 9:00 and 11:00 PM. The poor focus is due to my not knowing how to use my new camera, I even read the booklet- but fuzzy natural wonders are better than no natural wonders at all...and the eggs.

Hi Sparki!!
Yes, in the YARD. The yard is full of tropical plants and trees- it is really amazing. (If I do say so myself- ha ha). It is what made us choose this house - well, that and the pool :)
Miss you!
