A historical event in the village …

… but not many are aware of it: The first flower of the Stenocereus beneckei has opened after months in the bud. Not only just opened but it seemingly needed a gale force wind last night. This morning to our big surprise, coming back from a rainy and stormy hike along the beach during sunrise,  one of the buds was open. Don’t think that anyone else would have noticed but with out garden eyes we focus it all. These cacti from central Mexico are supposed to bloom during Summer and NOT supposed to flower in a moderate subtropical climate of this village but it does and at a moment (South African Winter) that nobody expects.

Well here are some pictures  I quickly shot beween two showers:
