Backyard" Hay Day" # 3

these photos are not quality, they are intended to tell a story and to help you imagine a tree full flowers that are 15 inches tall and 8 inches accross. 



this gives you an idea how big the tree is

If you enlarge you might be able to see the Cactus hanging like a vine 

Above shows a cluster of eight blooms, after the sun comes up. the moment the sun touches the blooms they start to droop

this is to show the type cactus vine they hang on,


Open at dark and by mid day they look like this. Truly only queen of the night


Can you look 3 stories up and see the one reaching for the stars, I could not see it in the dark but after the sun touched it, there it was




the plant hangs like garlands of Christmas lights, glowing in the dark and the sun


God' Creation Inspires Me
It's Amazing out there.

These are absolutely amazing! I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like this. I'm glad you are an early riser so you can get these pictures and share them with us.

The Night Blooming cactus is amazing. I don't think you ever put it on the blog in full view with the tree.

Wow Sandra.... That is awesome.... I do have a question... How did the cactus get up into the pine tree??? Was it planted it up there---or just happen somehow???? I have never seen anything quite like that... How did hubby get one in his hand????? Ladder I assume???

This is an awesome post.... I am amazed!!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

That night cactus is amazing. I knew you said the blooms were up in the tree but had no idea how high. I don't know how you get such wonderful pictures. The blooms are gorgeous.

The daylight views really give an idea of the size of the tree and how high those blooms are. The is amazing, I have never seen cactus growing in a pine tree before. Thanks for posting the photos.

It looks like you amazed a lot of us with this plant Sandra.
