    Cool Epiphyllum and Strelitzia nicolai

    This pink cactus flower is the first one for the pink cutting sent to me by an OT member a few years ago. I've watched this flower bud get bigger and bigger and today when I got up it was fully open. There is no way to miss this one, it's huge and my favorite color; Pink! Also, the white giant bird of paradise is in bloom again. The red headed woodpecker has been coming to visit and eat the big fat beetles that are enjoying the sticky sap the flowers put out.
