Look at this night blooming cactus (cereus). It began with two sprigs from my best friend, Eddie, who propagated it for me. Two years and an abundant amount of leaves/cacti, it bloomed! I photographed the cactus when the bud first appeared and continued taking the photos until the one, the absolute one bloom came. I'd like to see others' pictures.

This is a night blooming cactus. The hummingbirds and bees love it and they were on it last night.
This is a dragon fruit I have both the white flesh and the pink flesh, after they're done blooming if you're lucky you will get a fuchsia colored fruit
This is two of 15 night-blooming cereus' that bloomed on Jul 18th (6) and Jul 19th (9). The plant is quite large and about 30 years old. The blooms last only one night, are very fragrant and are spectacular! This plant normally blooms from mid-July through the end of August.
