Going away present

I moved to Oz December 98, and soon thereafter bought a small cactus. When we moved to our first home (the one just left), it was planted. After 14 years, it had grown to 5 stems, each around 6′ high.

Never flowered before, so as I was making a late night run to continue moving out of the sheds, I finally got to see one of the blooms in full flower. They only last a night.

  1. That is awesome. As a bit of a gardener (after woodworking!!) myself I really appreciate this. Even better you were able to capture it in a photo!
