That wonderful giant cactus plant in the back garden has done its trick of suddenly producing a host of lovely large flowers again. (Click to enlarge photo, and see below for links to earlier years’ posts on the very same phenomenon).
I saw them Tuesday morning, and I think they’ll be gone very soon (by Wednesday or the day after).
So lovely, so massive… and so sad that they last for so short a time.
But such is life. Enjoy and revel in things while they last, and then move on, holding the essence of it close inside you.
