Finally, my mystery bloom opened tonight. And a spectacle it was. It took about four hours to fluff it`s crinolines.
It is from the same cactus as last week`s pink bloom. I`m expecting a different color morph yet, but maybe next year.
Strangely, my other cactus also bloomed today.
This time though, it did so on steroids.
Never before has it produced the number of blooms as tonight. There are 24 booms on it, & the whole area is scented with their delicious aroma. These are on Planet Earth tonight.
The header is the Solistice Sunset.
Since it was the longest day of the year, I made it out of 11 shots I took at sunset.
Enjoy your summertime blues, or whatever music floats your boat.
