Serious About the Cereus

A little play on words today. For throwback Thursday I decided to resurrect one of my older images from 2009. It’s a shot of one of the many night-blooming Peruvian Cereus flowers that grew at our home in Tucson.

Getting up early in the morning to capture images of this amazing plant was such a thrill for me. I’d walk outside and talk to it, asking for it to give me all that it had … and it did not disappoint. This is one of my all-time favorites.

Happy Thursday! Namaste’

  1. Unusual image and presentation, Regina, but it all works very well indeed, and I particularly like the way that the tips of the petals are darkening – its as if the flower is being infected by the surrounding gloom. Adrian


    1. Thanks, Adrian. These flowers start to darken as they get ready to close up and wither away. The blooms don’t last long in the light of day. I appreciate your comment.


  2. Hello Flunked Retiree… I love that photo. In fact, you made me some beautiful cards with that very same flower and I love them. They are so nice I am reluctant to send out because they are so pretty. Hugs & Thank You.
