Night Blooming Cactus Oct 2016


Our plants and flowers and trees are confused from all the heat we have had since April. Night Blooming Cactus, also known as Queen of the Night, since they only bloom in the dark of night.

The plant is about 40 feet up in the pine tree and is always done with blooms by first week in Sept. Here we are at end of October and still it blooms. Prior Post of this flower.. HERE

I might be slow to comment today... Today is my last eye doctor apt for final check up on cataract surgery and to get refraction for new glasses. More dilation of eyes. phooey.

Really pretty pictures. It's fun to see the black/white edit, also.

Absolutely amazing.

I would be in trouble if I lived in your climate. I would wake with plants growing over me.

I must dig up the plant you sent seeds. It's not gonna bloom this year. I hope to remember to transplant before the frost.

Oh, I hope you got straight A's from your doc!
I'd never heard of Queen of the Night before, but your images are wonderful. Especially, I'm enjoying the black/white effect.
