Our Cereus plant is loaded with blooms--10 of them in fact! I took this yesterday morning, hoping they would be open Tuesday night before the winds took them away!
I also took a trip to our pond that has overflowed into a swamp again like it did a few years ago! Not our happiest conditions for that area. It is no longer wooded with pines and maples-it is rather grim. If we get the 12-18" of rain predicted, we will be able to row our boat around agan!
The sunshine gave way to this....
it will be grey skies for a few days.
Ian is moving so slowly, but the rains are here and I'm hoping the winds aren't extreme!
It's a good thing I know how to stay busy!
Lena helped me knock out a few hats last night while I waited for the flowers to open; they are their best around midnight but I couldn't wait that long to go so sleep-I
need to get the zzz's while I can!
The one on the left is from DK yarn and the right one is in worsted. I am loving this knitting machine,
in case you haven't noticed!
And at ten o'clock, I took a walk to look at the blossoms--the plant is about 48" tall with several 'branches'.
The flowers are large-5-6" across and droop about 8-10". And the aroma as I approached was heavenly! It was a very comfortable 78*F so the warmth adds to the sultriness.
It's the most amazing flower I have ever seen!
