Twleve Hour Flower

Cereus. The 5 foot cactus in my Moms yard, put on a show for me last night. I had been watching the blooms all week get bigger and bigger. Jack told us that last night would be the opening, and during the twelve hours that followed from sunset to sunrise, look at the beauty. It only blooms once, and I am in awe of the short, yet sweet life of this beauitful bloom.Thank you for waiting for me!
