Nature …

… as we all know (and some of us know even more than others), tends to freak me out … but then sometimes it produces this sort of thing and I will happily stand and stare at it for hours and hours … I love this night cactus-thingy-whatsit at my Pares’ place … it’s giving a gum tree a really big hug and the flowers open at night … and they look soooooo beautiful that my writer’s brain is trying to incorporate them into a story …

    Not a nice story, though. That’s kind of Cthulhian.

    When have I ever written a *nice* story??

    Oooh now that is a nice cactus. It’s massive!

    I knows! It’s so beautiful and weird I even went outside in the rain last night to look at it again … less flowers, though, it looks like it’s dying time. Still, awesome.

    It’s a variety of moonflower. The flowers usually open at dusk and close around dawn. Only last one night about this time of year. I have a couple at home.

    So beautiful and so brief. Glorious and sad.

    And prickly! 🙂
