My neighbors night blooming cactus. Closed during daylight, open at night.

Cereus chalybaeus (named from Greek/Latin signifying A Torch) also known as Columnar Cacti

OOOOOHHHH! The blooming flower is GORGEOUS!!! And what are those round pink things? Fruit of some kind, cactus fruit? I guess the bats get the fruit and the moths get the flower.

That bloom is outstanding. I think you people live in the jungle. Never seen such photos of flowers so amongst.

Isn't nature something? This could be an extra in a sci-fi flick!

Blame it on my stroll through the produce section a little while ago, but those red bulbs look just like radishes!

That's a beautiful bloom on what is a rather unattractive plant during the day. Thanks for the weekend smiles, Sandra.

That is one of the prettiest cacti I have ever seen. The pretty blue sky is a lovely backdrop for these super photographs, and the close up of the flower, fantastic!

Ann said...

Oh that's pretty. I do like your puns but I believe I will refrain from hugging any cacti

Ruth Hiebert said...

The open blossom is spectacular.

Rose said...

I would love to see this in real life!

Hello Sandra!:) The flower in full bloom is gorgeous, well done for capturing it's beauty. It does seem a shame that these beautiful flowers only bloom at night and are hardly seen, but the red buds are pretty. Love the puns.:=)
