I posted a few days ago that this October seems more like July. We've had record high temperatures this weekend and it was just too hot to do much outside.
Then when I returned home this evening after several hours away, I went into the sunroom and I could smell that something was blooming. I recognized the scent, and thought, "It can't be that."
But it was.
Hidden behind the blinds of the sunroom, the Night-blooming Cereus was blooming again.
I never even saw the flower bud, because it was hidden behind the blinds.
My night bloomer once bloomed in September, but to my knowledge, this is the first time it has ever bloomed in October.
I'm sure glad I didn't miss it, because it would be a sad event for such a flower to bloom alone with no one to admire it.
But I'm all confused by this weather, by this flower blooming now.
