I love my cactus garden and on Day 22, I was surprised by one of my new cactus plants flowering for the first time. This is the view from the side and the flower was nearly bigger than the plant. The flower only lasted for one day, actually less than that, as it closed up at dusk, and was dead the next morning.

Oh, this is beautiful Shez! Are you feeling better now? I was hoping that glorious red ribbon forever to grace your profile might have a bit of a healing touch :)

And you are still turning out such beautiful Australian Spring wonders!!
