This is an opera of night blooms in Pink Major opus 5.
These were almost exclusively taken by flashlight in the dark of night. The cactus bloom is below the level of the deck where I have to be on my knees to even look at it.
Although it is related in some way to my other blooming cactus, this pink blossomed one is very low to the ground.
I believe I`ve seen some of these as big as 8 feet tall cactus trees, but thre one here is completely opposite in stature to my 12 foot tall ones out front.
Strangely enough, the tall white blossomed Cerus also had another bloom tonight. It was quite a sight with the full moon.
On Planet Earth, I posted anoth flower from my yard with a Sycamore tree as background. This one is the Tiara for the Queen of Europe who should be soon back from abroad.
Have a nice day & boil the water.
