I took this a week or so ago in our garden. We bought the cactus in Phoenix probably about two and a half years ago and it wasn’t until mid to late last year it finally got planted in the ground.
Since then it, along with it’s companions have been doing really well and earlier this month the first flower bloomed.
It was ahead of the other three and I failed to capture it before it quickly faded the next day; you can see it in the middle here.
The other three followed swiftly after and I was ready with the Pen F Digital to capture it.
It’s not the best photo I have taken I should have allowed a wider depth of field but overall I am happy that we have this photo of it’s first flowering, I hope it brightens your day.
