Cactus flower, Brisbane, Australia

Our tall, lanky cactus produced this magnificent apricot colored flower in February. It only lasted a day or so and then it was gone.

This week a baby cactus (arm) was born at the base, close to the soil. Perhaps it sprouted out to support the main stem and prevent it from toppling over.

For the past few years this hardy cactus has been growing taller and taller.
