Backyard Blooms

That echinopsis cactus in my back yard is blooming again. Such beauty and you only get one day to enjoy it.

Somehow the cycle of life for this bloom makes its beauty even more poignant.

That's so beautiful. It amazes me that anything can bloom in this heat. I guess it's bloomin' hot!

So elegant and fleeting. It's a good thing you captured this beauty when you did.

With your camera and computer, you can enjoy it for more than a day.

You can tell by my "name" photo, that this is one of my favorite cactus' blossoms. Lovely.

Mine has also bloomed, however this flower seems to have more petals so it must be a different species. It's gorgeous!

This is so majestic. I'm envious that you have one of your own!
