So far this August has been one for the books. It is unseasonably cool and we have had enough rain that I even had a friend comment that she has never seen my garden look better at this time of year. I must say I agree with her.
As I returned to the patio I found that the night blooming cereus was about to bloom. I had been watching the buds swell the past few days. Both of them. I was surprised that the Cereus didn't develop more blooms what with the mild weather. Maybe it prefers the weather to be hotter and drier.
As the sun was going down the buds began to open.
Amazing how if you sit there long enough you can almost see the movement of the bud opening.
I waited and waited to see if I could get a shot of a moth coming to the bloom. I wasn't fortunate enough to see a moth but it was still fun watching the blooms open.
Just me and the moon out there.
Have you had any exciting happenings in your garden lately?
Tomorrow is another Super Moon. You know I will be watching. Will you be watching?
