I bet you wonder what that’s all about? Mom has this plant that has these big ol’ flowers that show up in the summer. She told me it was an Epiphyllum, but I tried and tried to say that big word and it was coming out all messed up. So, I call it My Epi! This is what the flower looks like.
The funny thing about My Epi is that it blooms in the dark and then….poof….it’s gone as soon as the sun hits it. Sorta like a vampire, I guess. Except it doesn’t suck your blood….
I asked Mom about My Epi, and she said this one came from a plant her Mom had. That means its older than the hills! (Sorry Mom). It takes years until it decides to bloom, especially in the cooler climate we have in Oregon. So, Toby and I decided to pose in front of some of this year’s blooms. We had to hurry, though…Posing’s always good for a treat–at least, that’s what I say!
