First Bloom

For the first time, my Night blooming Cereus (Epiphyllum oxypetalum) has produced a bloom.  We've been watching and waiting, but by the time we headed towards sleepy-time, it had not opened.  But sometime in the the darkness, it unfurled it's petals.  Fortunately for us, it was still open when we glanced out in the morning.

Of course, as the day warmed, the bloom curled and faded.  But we are looking forward to additional blooms as the plant still has two more buds that have yet to open.
