This plant is called a Cereus plant, or “Queen of the Night”. It only blooms perhaps once a year, ONE NIGHT a year, and usually opens up late at night soon after midnight with my experience. This is the second year it’s bloomed, and it’s really an awesome few hours to see her in all her glory, for in the morning, she closes up, and she is done. There were two blooms that opened up at the same time. It’s truly an honor to be in her presence, because it’s SO easy to miss this beautiful bloom!

    I stayed up til like 6 am taking shots… you have to be really really careful, because it’s only at night, and if you use your flash, it may make the flower close up; which I’ve read about. Search “cereus” —→ seriously, it’s quite interesting. I’m sure Victoria will like this pretty flower, LOL! And I’m sure Hollie’s daughter Ozlynn knows all about it!!! Smart kids! Cute too ; ) Ciao for now. Onto the big debate tonight; hmmm… shall be interesting!
