Favorite Flower Friday

I was walking down my hall and looked out my window and saw through the screen:
 Grabbed my camera and took a shot through the screen.  Eeeeks, our Echi was blooming.
 Rushing outside for a better shot.  This is a variety of Echinocereus.  Isn't that a beautiful bloom?!  This is a night bloomer, but the flowers usually last untill noon.  Here it was about 8 am when I  noticed it.
 And here is a closer shot.  I love these flowers.

Have a great weekend!

Beautiful! I've lived in New York and Florida, so I've not seen that before. So pretty!
Never have seen on of those beautiful flowers! It's a shame they only bloom at night. Thanks for sharing. Warm hugs, Esther
Oh my! We sure don't have anything like that in Nashville :*) It's gorgeous!!!!

You have all sorts in your garden .

The flowering cactus is so pretty and one impressive flower too. So they flower overnight and then die before lunch ? It doesnt seem very fair!

Thanks for linking up again this week.
