Cereus, A Night Blooming Cactus


I thought it might be nice to dream of something that blooms in the
summer on these cold and icy days.
I ran across these pictures of this remarkable cactus.
  It's called Cereus and it only blooms at night. 
It is very fragrant. It smells like a sweet lotion.
Enjoy.
This is the pod which starts to slowly open before nightfall.




Slowly opening. Notice it's now dark.



A little more.



And finally this beautiful flower  is open. 
 It's around 11:00 p.m.




Isn't it gorgeous?


And it smells so sweet!


What a lovely specimen of God's creation.



God is so magnificent!

You will seek me and find me
when you seek me with all your heart.
Jeremiah 29:13
