It's hard to imagine that such a homely plant can produce such spectacular blossoms.... Blooming just one night a year!

My sister, Tammy, sent me these photos of the Cirrus flowers growing around town where I come from in Florida. The night blooming cirrus - it's a very ordinary looking cactus-type plant. It climbs up trees and has bloom pods hanging off it that look remarkably like cat hairballs.
