Last night my Cereus cactus opened up a beautiful double bloom. It was the third bloom in the past week.
This species produces large white flowers that open up around sunset and last until sunrise the next morning, about 9 hours right now in southwestern Ohio.
It got me thinking.
This plant puts an enormous amount of energy into producing a flower that lasts a matter of hours. A flower that nothing sees except a bats and moths.
Maybe I need to be more like the cactus. It doesn’t complain about a lack of water. It doesn’t complain too much about soil once a few basic conditions are met. It just grows. Steady and constant.
Be like the cactus flower. Bloom no matter who is watching. Bloom for you.
