I don't know why but it's only letting me put up one photo per post. This was fun, I'm hoping it will turn into fruit so I can collect the seeds.

Thanks everyone! it was fun to watch the buds develop and finally flower for the one night. Today they are completely closed and droopy. I did notice alot of bees out in there this morning so I hope it has been pollinated.
Lance, I think yours looks like it is doing well up in Maine I hope you do get the flowers next year!

Oh, what a beauty Jackie! The flowers look larger than the actual cactus! You took great shots too! Thanks for showing us! Those are some beautiful blooms!
