Night Blooming Cereus

Sorry I have been MIA, but LIFE kept getting in my way.  First off I had major
computer problems. Had to buy a new computer and what do I do with that one-
Yep I somehow got a virus in it.  Our computer guy said I had 841 threats. Good
news he got it all worked out. That is why I hate to go online and download
something that was safe which evidently my virus protection that came with
the computer did not pick up. So as soon as I got it back I went out and bought
Norton virus protection and downloaded it to my computer.
A friend of mine gave me these plants about two years ago and I waited
that long for it to have blooms.  These only bloom one time and it blooms
late at night. When I saw that I had two blooms I was thrilled. I was determined
that I would get up and see it open and take these pictures.  Went to bed and told my
husband if he woke up during the night to wake me up but  I woke up before him
at 12:30 and grab my camera and hoped that it did open. Mind you I am not one
to go out in my yard late at night because I am afraid of might be lurking around
like snakes or other little creatures. But I went any way. Both flowers had bloomed.
Took pictures and went back to bed and my husband woke up about 2:00 and woke
me up to go take pictures of flowers. Told him I did that at 12:30. Went back to sleep
and got up again at 4:30 and both flowers were dead. They only bloom for a couple of hours
late at night and if you miss it well you miss it .But I was so glad I was able to get
these pictures. Hopefully they will bloom again sometime. Maybe not this year
but next.
