Cactus Flower In Bloom

Sometimes when you haven't been home in a while, you see it with new eyes when you return. Growing up, I always thought of our backyard as ordinary, but going back it seems like a wonderland of quintessential (if not necessarily native) Southern Californian plants and flowers —  palm trees, bougainvillea, cacti, aloe, the exotic dragon tree. When this cactus flower bloomed for just one day, I was inspired to snap the rest of the botanical world of the backyard I grew up in.
