"She's At It Again...!"

...More Nocturnal Activity...
Showing off 5 of her bloomers to her batty late night friends
for the third time this summer season!
TSK! TSK!
What a "flirt" my Night Blooming Cereus is!
I can tell
she's even lining up more activity for the coming nights...
flower buds are sticking out of her everywhere!
One thing she isn't...is shy!
One thing she is...is the local queen of the night.


Here's a bit of "bling"
left just dangling from one her arms this morning...
some "spent blooms" from her Saturday night out on the town!
Should I "ground" her?
...her life's foundations thus far have been pretty "rocky".
Oooh...but, she is such a pretty child...oooh!
What's a mother to do???


I confess, though, that
I did take a peek inside some of her personal things
in an attempt to try to figure out what makes her tick...
and I think she will be just fine.
It's just one of those "stages" youngsters go through! :)

Happy Cactus Monday All!
May all your cactus children treat you well!
