I have lots of pictures of my Night Blooming Cereus or Queen of the Night, which has bloomed for the first time this year, and three times, even in early Autumn! And finally, I´ve decided to play with some abstracts, one of them particularly interesting because the bud looks like a little monster.

And this one looks like flying!
I´ve posted this one to give a clear idea of how the flower is closed.
The recently born Cereus bud. Always so interesting in its pattern.
