The Epiphyllums Are Blooming

Being a bit of a plant lover, I have all kinds of things growing around the house including Epiphyllums, also called jungle cactus. These flat leaved, somewhat floppy looking plants have the most amazing flowers. This one just glows in the sun in an almost flourescent way that is difficult to capture on a photograph. The flowers don't last long. They only bloom once a year...but when they bloom, wow. There are also yellows, whites, ochres and oranges that have been blooming this year.
