When I went out to get the paper this morning I was greeted by one of the most beautiful things you can find in the desert. Our cactus had one huge singular bloom that was wide open. Even after four years of living in Arizona the beauty that can come from something so strange (some think ugly) as a cactus can still take my breath away. This is the second bloom on this cactus but I never got a shot of the first one opened in it's full glory. They close by 7 a.m and only stick around a few days. Sort of a reminder of how fast the good things in life go by, and that we should just take a moment to enjoy them all.
