I know I have posted these flowers before, but every time they in bloom I am amazed at the beauty and the mystery of these flowers of the night.
Here is a time sequence

Thanks Rusty for this gorgeous photo shoot. I'd never seen this before as cacti do not thrive in my country! ;-)

nice job capturing the blooming sequence - it is an intriguing plant.

you did a fine work on your backyard re-do as well. i liked the before and after photos.

i was trying to hold out for the cooler weather to do my fall clean-up but the heat has outlasted me. this week in the awful heat and high humidity i made a huge stab at a big chore.
