I'm cactus! / by Mario Mirabile

We caught up with Kerry and Robert on Friday. Just as we arrived, Roberts friend Eddie came across the street to show us his amazing blooming cactus. The cactus was about the size of a large bread roll, but sported six large flower spikes each about 20cm long and topped by a spectacular pink bloom. We speculated about the photographic possibilities, and despite the fact that the blooms only last about two days, Eddie offered to leave the plant there overnight so we could have a go at it the next day.
