A night party

My night blooming cereus never fails to appear on time when the rains start to come. And this season is no exception as two days ago, it opened its blossoms. Just in time for me to enjoy before I came back down to my city home.
Here're some photos to show off. Wish I could share also the fragrance, too. Really liked it when my small living was filled with the scent.

At 4.30 pm

At 6.30pm, the bloom opened a little

At 7.00 pm, the scent started to fill the air

At late at 10pm, the blooms still looked good

A pure, milky white

There was something unusual about this plant as, unlike the common "drooping" sight the morning-after, this was what I saw then - the two "faded" blooms looked like they would re-open the next evening.

Didn't look at all spent!

Unfortunately, I wouldn't be around then to confirm the fact.
Do you know of any species having this particular blooming/fading habit?

My daylilies

I'm so lag behind on my English page. This entry will be mostly photos of daylily blooms in my garden only. I promise I will write decently when I feel more settled.

Please bear with me and come back later.
