Worth the Wait!

What a difference a couple days make...



This was my night blooming Epiphyllum yesterday when I got home from work...


When it got dark I started going out every half hour or so to monitor its progress...




I stayed up 'til after midnight to watch it open...







open lovely flower
and scent the night air sweetly
darkness falls on thee

  3. This is stunning Diane - how lovely. I smiled when you mentioned zucchini as we call them courgettes here and eggplant are aubergines ( mine is in flower now so here's hoping ) I had to get used to the new names for them when I lived in Antigua.
