I forgot to mention in earlier posts that we had brought the big night
blooming cereus inside yesterday afternoon. About 9 pm a bloom opened up
for us, the first we got to watch from a bud to a bloom in one sitting. 

Absolutely beautiful and the scent filled the house very quickly. Alas,
this morning it looks like a rag laying there. So beautiful and dies so
soon. Never fear though, there are two more buds to go.

Eat your heart out Matt Trahan. <BSEG>
