Night Blooming Cereus

Greetings all! I just had to share with you a picture of my Night Bloom Cereus, which gifted me with this beautiful flower last night!! The fragrance was so
exotic. I have been waiting patiently for this, checking the bud daily, watching it grow...until finally this! It was fully open at about 10:00 p.m. By this morning the flower had completely closed up and wilted!

I am getting ready to pull out my knitting and get some more rows done on my sweater...I hope to soon reveal it to you all!!!

I'm so glad to hear that you were able to see the bloom! I'm always amazed at the flowers that bloom just for a very brief time for a day and then they are gone. Too bad they don't last longer. These flowers are usually the prettiest and the best smelling.

Can't wait to see how the cardi is coming along. I've got to get back to Em's sweater. It's coming along wonderfully.
