The Echinopsis subdenudata bloomed today!

Echinopsis subdenudata

Such an amazing flower for a small plant. The plant is three inches in diameter, the flower stalk is six inches tall, and the flower itself is three inches in diameter.

I love the star shaped stigma, surrounded by the ring of anthers and filaments.

Such a cool sight.  Plus, it's fragrant.  When I woke up this morning, I could smell its sweetness from my bedroom on the other side of the house.

So pretty -- although the plant itself is a bit odd looking with that flower sticking up!
