While many cacti have beautiful flowers, the Night-blooming Cirrus is special in that it blooms only for one night during the late summer. A beautiful flower about 4-5 inches across opens up as night falls, then closes forever with the first rays of the morning sun. My photos were taken at 11:30 in the evening.
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
I was born and raised in the cold country of Minnesota. After spending thirty seven years in education, retirement in Arizona was my answer. Today, my interests and passions include traveling, playing tennis and being with my grandchildren.
