A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in–what more could he ask? A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars.
~ Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

  1. Gorgeous! The b&w really works to showcase the texture and the contrast of the petals. I am making a wild guess here…is that a night-blooming cereus?


    • Janet, it is! Nice guess!! It’s too bad a blossom this beautiful is really only in full bloom at night. By day they are already looking a little weary, and then die off shortly after. I caught this one early in the morning before the hot sun settled on it. Glad you like it!


      • Several years ago a friend had a late night party to await the opening of his first cereus bloom. It was amazing to watch it open in the moonlight, about 2am. I don’t think Ai could stay awake for that any more😉.
