The unusual beauty of cactus always surprises me.  This cactus was especially colorful, and helped to remind me that interest and beauty can be found even in what appears to be ordinary and unexciting.  The constant challenge comes in allowing myself to see it.

I took advantage of some beautiful morning light this morning to try to get a shot of the bloom on the Echeveria Cactus on my deck.  Although I’ve owned it for a couple of years, this is the first time it has ever bloomed for me, surprising me with these beautiful pink/orange flowers.
