A Cereus Celebration, Seriously!

Thanks to all who came out to see (and raise a glass to) the night-blooming cereus. It put on a spectacular show on Monday, June 16, and by Tuesday morning, the buds had all closed up and dropped to the ground. Now, this unassuming cactus will all but disappear into the background until one midsummer's night next year when it will once again come alive in a striking display of blooms.  

Tonight's the night! The Cereus is about to bloom!

Wine at 9... til 10:30. Come celebrate with us and raise a toast to this beautiful flowering cactus!

All indications are tonight's the night.
The rain won't stop this spectacular sight! 
If you can't make it by the Garden tonight,
Try and stop by before dawn's early light!

So, if you're "serious" about seeing the "cereus," come on out to Mead Garden tonight!

A Not So Serious Salute to the Night-blooming Cereus

It's an impromptu party -- and you're invited! Come celebrate this once-a-year event and raise a glass with us to the night-blooming Cereus!
