“Night Magic”

????????????????

Years ago, in Southern California, we had a cactus in our backyard named Night Blooming Cereus. It only bloomed once a year for one night. About seven in the evening you would see a large bud on the side of the cactus. At about twelve to one in the morning the flower would be in full bloom and about the size of a dinner plate. By three or four in the morning the flower started to close and by seven in the morning it would be completely wilted and gone. If you did not notice the bud that one night, you would miss the “magic” until the next year.
