Time for our cactus to bloom! It is a night blooming cereus and as the name implies, it only blooms at night! Richard has been able to keep some offshoots alive so we are hoping for some new plants from this one. We have had this one cactus since 1994 and it is over six feet in height! Frogs love to be inside the folds of the cactus and we love that we provide that space for them!
Why did I say pay attention in my title? It is because it is easy for us to sometimes miss a bloom on this plant, we wil go out after the sun is risen, and we will see the bloom almost closed up...we missed the bloom! It hasn't happened often, but it can happen. It makes me think that there may be other things that we might miss, something spectacular, so we all need to pay closer attention!
Lesson for today: Pay attention, you never know what you might miss!
(These photos with the light are in the very early morning, the flowers close up very soon when the sun is on them!)
