home tour-july 28th

This is going to be fun, I think! BooMama has come up with this great idea about a Bloggers Home Tour on July 28th, for one day....go over to her place and you can read all about it and how you do it, and if you decide you want to 'do it', you too can post this logo so people know you are participating....Pickalish over at Pickled Tink turned me on to this fun happening....So, you have 9 days to prepare....Ooooooo what fun!

And because I think this is such a swell idea....I am going to give you all a little peek at one small place in my house....just a teaser of what is to come on July 28th!

And here it is....




Moving right along....

These flowers will open tonight! There are eight all together....seven, almost in a cluster of sorts....It's going to be an interesting look when they are all open at once!

And just to show you what happens to these beautiful flowers in a little more than 12 hours past midnight when they are at their most 'open'....here they were late last night...(just a reminder...) And here they are today.... Finished. Ended. Over. For another year. And so...later tonight I will be hoping to capture the eight beauties that will be wide open and I'm also hoping if I'm real quiet, that wonderful pollinating moth will appear and let me get a picture of himself doing his thing or whatever!

And I will post the results on July 2oth!

Yes!

More to come.....

Hi, Why do these flowers open only at night? Do they only open once? It's wonderful of you to be able to capture them on camera. Night bloomers! We must miss seeing many beautiful flowers then.
I look forward to seeing the next bouquet!

I had read about the tour over at Kenju's...but because of recent postings when I showed my tile, I decided to pass on it. Looking forward to seeing all the other homes though.
Awww...the flowers are gone. But at least you certainly enjoyed them despite their short lifespan.

well hell lol.. that's the day i leave for the weekend for the convention... so that following monday I will be playing catchup with journals i read and posting about the con.. ah well.. this isn't my home anyway so you wouldn't learn a thing about me lol..
I'm glad that a handful of those flowers are blooming each night for you.. that way it seems like you can enjoy the flowers as long as any other blooming flower!!

did you try to listen to gregg hunter on the computer radio monday night?? I think you would enjoy him.

Gorgeous. Sometimes I feel like those flowers....like it takes everything I have to be beautiful, put on my best face, and shine for one glorious day.....and then I just can't take another minute and crash and burn. I feel like that analogy really fits me at times. So much energy expelled for such a short time, it makes me sad!!

Hmmm...you've got me on that teaser photo of your home...I'll be sure to come and see what it really is!!!

Hi Naomi, I think this “Tour of Homes” will be great! I can’t wait to see another corner of your beautiful house and I would like to see your antique stove, too!

Love your Cereus photos! Those beautiful and strangest plants of the desert are amazing. Guess what? I found a Blog about Cereus, http://nbcereus.blogspot.com/2005/09/further-cereus-development-9-03-2005.html and a Cereus Home Page, http://rfovell.bol.ucla.edu/cereus.html

But believe me, my dear Naomi, your photos are the MOST BEAUTIFUL than the others!

The home tours sound like fun. I will check it out.

I hope you are having a good week thus far.
It is HOT here, and I mean HOT!
I suppose I can't get any sympathy though, since you were without AC for quite awhile and also, the entire country seems to be in a heat wave.

I look forward to seeing the flowers. I wish they lasted longer since they are so beautiful.

I feel bad for those flowers...BOOM, one shot and out for a whole year. That kinda sucks!

I just had to rush over here and tell you, Houston we have a dress, I repeat we have a dress.
And if people hate it they better not say anything I don't want to know LOL

In the last one they look like washed up models drying their dyed red hair!
Sadder than the high fashion sunflowers when they wilt.

I am anxious to see the large moth. You don't usually think of moths as being beautiful, like butterflies, but some are gorgeous.

Home tours sounds very interesting!! The pictures are lovely of course. I always love seeing your beautiful flowers.

I was wondering about that house or whatever it was that was being built on top of that hill before. I know it's probably too hot for your walks around the neighborhood now, but I wondered how that was progressing. Maybe when it cools off??

Give Sweetie a kiss for me!!
