Happy Monday and Night Blooms.

     The backyard is full of Night-blooming cactus buds. I guess when you love something so much you tend to let it take over and use up as much space as it want's.

     The tiny bud in the center is what they all looked like just a couple of days ago and most look like they should open either tonight or tomorrow night:-)

     I will wait up until midnight, venture out into the back yard with flashlight and camera in hand in hopes of snapping a good picture or two when they are open.

    A lot of trouble you may say, but I say it's so worth it! Just wait until you see how gorgeous they are. It is a little strange though, that Mother Nature would reserve all of that beauty for the middle of the night, Hmmm ... what could she have been thinking?

                                   Happy Monday all
