Cactus flower

I am not particularly fond of cactus plants. So it was only with the appearance of a flower that I became interested. For me, flowers define the plant and when they are absent, my attention span is usually down to zero for any particular plant unless other aspects of the plant or tree is interesting.

Wow the flower looked very exotic and beautiful. The only flower I saw bloom in my brother's house is the pot of "keng hua", it usually bloom during midnight but been a long time since his pot of keng hua bloom. I think another name for keng hua is known as epiphyllum oxypetalum (not so sure about the name).

Mable, Ok I got it this time, TY. :) You look very pretty during your childhood, I looked very chubby during my childhood lol. I will try to put a slide of my childhood photo...hehehe ...and hopefully I have the courage to post them in my blog...lol

I am my maternal grandmother's favourite grandchild. She passed away when I was in Pri 2 (8 yrs old). I still miss her and her hand made quilt for me was a memory to me but alas my mother threw it away because it was tattered and torn.

About the 4D from the Keng hua same thing too for my dad....lol
