May has come …

“The wind is tossing the lilacs,
The new leaves laugh in the sun,
And the petals fall on the orchard wall,
But for me the spring is done.

Beneath the apple blossoms
I go a wintry way,
For love that smiled in April
Is false to me in May.”

– Sara Teasdale, May

Does anyone happen to know what the name of this house plant is?

I’d be very appreciative to know what this spindly, long leafed I can’t say if I can call them leafs:) plant is that bears these large and gorgeous pink flowers, if you know please enlighten me, thanks! ‘~]))

To reiterate this is in the Cactaceae family, it’s an Epiphyllum cactus, ( I was thinking a succulent, wrong!)

Thank you Andy for identifying this for me!

The Tulip Bed

The May sun–whom
all things imitate–
that glues small leaves to
the wooden trees
shone from the sky
through bluegauze clouds
upon the ground.
Under the leafy trees
where the suburban streets
lay crossed,
with houses on each corner,
tangled shadows had begun
to join
the roadway and the lawns.
With excellent precision
the tulip bed
inside the iron fence
upreared its gaudy
yellow, white and red,
rimmed round with grass,
reposedly.

William Carlos Williams

Happy Birthday to me!
