A rare event.

Bedlam - photo shoot.

We have an ugly little cactus / succulent in the garden. We have several types actually, but this one in particular is worth a mention.

It does nothing for most of the year except look fat, ugly, and dejected. Then for a mere 3 hours of one day it will perk up and display beautiful flowers. If you don't catch them in the morning, you're too late, they'll be gone by lunch.

I thought you might like to see a couple of photos I captured of the rare event.

I have no idea of the name of the plant. It was one of a number we purchased from the rastro about eight years ago as tiny diddly things no bigger than a thumb. If anyone recognizes it, I'd love to know what it's called.

End of post - A rare event.
