Night Blooming Season
From Tucson we find out that…
The cereus cacti are about to bloom.
Not here they’re not. We are definitely later bloom season that the Arizonans. Our Cardons are getting ready now, but no cereuses yet.

Besides night-blooming cereus plants, landscape designer Jessie Bird’s property has daytime beauties like this peniocereus serpentinus.
Now that’s a nice specimen.
Bloom-night bashes gather flowers and friends. Jessie Byrd issues an e-mail heads-up when she sees cereus buds fattening. Then she invites friends over when the blooming begins.
We do that too! Hah – Just kidding! We’re too lazy to have a party. I blame our need for night time sleep.
