Cacti are known for their beautiful flowers.
This little cactus is an overachiever, however.
The cactus itself is just about the size of a baseball. The flower has a larger diameter than the cactus.
It has at least two more fuzzy buds, so you can be sure I will be watching it closely. It flowered at last night, and was only open for about an hour early this morning. It would be easy to miss the next show.
