Today's Flowers # 3 - a Cactus in bloom



Our Cactus Plant is once again in bloom. Clueless as i was before, i didn't even know that cactus can have flowers too. So i was surprised when i first saw one. It was so beautiful. I was enchanted by it. Its flowers opens up only at night and early dawn but closes it's petals in the morning. I had to wake up at early dawn just to take a shot of it because it's the time where it fully blooms.

This is a beautiful shot. I knew cactus have flowers, probably because I live where they grow outdoors. I've never seen a white cactus flower, very beautiful.
