The Epiphyllum Has Bloomed.

It's incredible. Lovely, lovely.

Oh, it must be hard to stop looking at it all the time!

How beautiful.

Yes, and it only lasted for about six hours. I spent all evening photographing it, staring at it, smelling it and petting it; when I got up this morning, it was gone.

Stunning. Lucky that you could take a little minute to watch it!

Isn't it a miracle, something akin to love, to know that one waits a whole year for the magic of a bloom that lasts a few moments and then is gone. To me that is one of the greatest affirmations of our lives.

A lot of beauty is fleeting, isn't it? I tried to post a comment soon after you posted this, but blogger wasn't behaving.

Your pictures are beautiful, an artists eye behind the lens makes a lot of difference in capturing just how wonderful that bloom was, for just that small amount of time.

Nancy, that's exactly what I thought when I saw that pic. How she sees things, differently than you and I do, and perhaps does it instantly.

so beautiful,
Pretty Lady,
I love gardens, gardening,
I've turned my entire small rented yard, into a flowering and vegetable garden
God Bless

You had that miracle happen in your actual living space?

I may have to re-think my attitude on houseplants.
