The Perfume of Fairies!

 Night blooming Cereus is worth staying up way too late to sit and admire and 
breathe in the amazing savor of this bloom! 
 I am losing my sense of smell but am so grateful this still can cause an aromatic thrill!
 Look at this center!
 The bloom looks delicate but it is a very large and substantial flower!  
The center is 2" across!
The common name for this flower is Dutchman's Pipe because of the stem supporting the bloom-
This is what it looked like this morning--see the 'pipe'?
I knew tonight was THE night because of the exploding bloom.
This was the bloom last weekend so you can see how it has, well, blossomed in just a week!
