Living In The Desert Is Cool. I'm Cereus!

Night Blooming Cereus in the wild

The cactus doesn't attract one bit of attention...  until it blooms.  Google "night blooming cereus," and you'll find a community of ardent admirers of the plant, some utterly magnificent photographs, and reams and reams of print.

We're fortunate to see them in the wild here in Tucson.  This one bloomed along a riding trail in Catalina State Park, just north of Tucson, AZ, in the shadow of Pusch Ridge.

I didn't know that cactus plants bloomed at night.  I recently bought some moon lillies which I'm told also bloom at night.  Very interesting..

Gabrielle,

You are cereus-ly funny!  Thanks for making me smile.

Lola,

My 10 year old granddaughter looked at your comment, and exclaimed "Michelle Obama reads your blog!"  Thanks for making her day!

Susie,

I'll bet you do.  :)

Caron,

I appreciate what you have to say; thanks for stopping by.

Fran,

Yes, there's a lot to give praise for, isn't there?

Gorgeous photo and sentiment, Mike.  It wasn't until I moved away that I learned to really appreciate the beauty and mystery of the desert.  Sometimes I miss it terribly, and I'm very excited for a quick visit next week.

Thanks so much for stopping by my site last week.  I'd love to connect with your family in Michigan sometime!  If you send me an email address, I can send an announcement of upcoming fall workshkops.
