How often does a cactus flower? Not often enough, by my standards.

So when I saw this beautiful pink bloom, I had no choice but to capture the short-lived flower on photos before it closed and faded.

That is how ephemeral the flowers of such succulents are. In reality, there are a lot of beautiful things that do not last long enough for us to appreciate. Don't let happiness be one of them.
