Night Blooming Cereus

Night Blooming Cereus
.. droplets of rain
.. on a flower that only bloomed at 10pm
.. attached to a spiky cactus [ yes, it hurt ]

.. always warned my neighbor that I'd be out there
.. the first year, I didn't tell her
.. she and her husband wondered 'who was outside their bedroom window at 10pm at night'

.. on a night like this, with no moon
.. carrying a flashlight and a camera became a balancing act

.. but worth it all

I've done this: stay up almost all night taking photos of the flower every once in a while. You got a very good result.

Ronald, The first year I discovered this in the side yard, nobody on Flickr could tell me what it was other than ' there are many varieties ' ..
Never did get to the Dragon Fruit before the birds ..

Does it only flower at night?

Peggy C has replied to Andy Rodker
Thank you, Andy ..

This variety does; had a friend a couple of towns over who had a succulent that bloomed at night also, but the entire plant was covered in blooms -- this cactus didn't have more than 4 blooms at a time.
After if flowers, it begins the reverse process and closes up in the daylight.

Marvel ? Very good description ...
But, very fickle about temperatures .. it froze back [yes, it can freeze in Florida], and don't think it quite recovered.

Thank you, Sir Richard -
Out of the hundreds of shots, I'm amazed you remember this one.
Were you out there in the dark with me and I didn't know it?
