Happy Birthday Elvis?

It's his birthday... I'm not really an Elvis fan. This all seems so very sacrilegious but I just needed something to celebrate my cactus (aka Epiphyllum x buckleyi) bloom.

I am grabbing these photos before we move today.

Ok, NoSoAngryRedhead if you are looking... please do not look too close. I have been studying your techniques on Instructables but my lack of time this morning did not allow me proper set-up (or focus).

I'm not really a fan either but yeah for the tardy cactus.

Those blossoms are so delicate and intricate.

Love the flowers! Me & inside plants don't typically see eye-to-eye. IL is pretty inhospitable in the winter with the cold, and especially dryness. Maybe next time I try a cactus?????

The Herbal Husband loves Elvis and sounds a lot like him when he sings albeit with a Spanish accent! I do like the cactus as well. Hope your move goes well!

Thumbs down on Elvis but good luck on the move.

It's David Bowie's birthday too if you need a reason to celebrate! Best of luck with the move today.

I like Elvis and a few of his songs though not a true fan. Better still, love your never-seen-before cactus with its delicate and beautiful blooms!
