Thanks for adding the caption. It is very informative. I took a photo of some yesterday after noticing that they only lasted a day. I had to stand on a pile of 'stuff' in the corner of my yard and hold the camera over my head to reach the blooms on my neighbor's cactus. They are beautiful. Nice job.
