Every once in a while you get

"...shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right." (G.Dead/Robert Hunter)

Sitting in my living room, eating lunch, happened to glance out the window, not at the distance, but at the forgeround where 2 cactus proto-flowers have started. I have had these plants since around 1984 and they've only bloomed a handful of time, within the past few years sitting in full sun.

While the stalks look ill and barely alive, today's double shoot discovery is evidence of vitality. I've missed a couple blooms, only finding the flowers after they've opened, closed and fallen off in pencil-stub size gray cylinders.
