My First Cactus Flower

07_25_2017_28

Over the winter I picked up a whole bunch of established cacti from an estate sale here on Gabriola. I have only ever had small cacti, but these ones are all quite old (as old as 40 years) and for the first time this spring I got to see a cactus flowering! It happened very quickly, one day there was a small bud on the cactus, then the next day it was a full flower. Another day later and the blossom was gone. So beautiful!
