Short-lived Brazilian bloom

I have a Brazilian friend whom I first met when she was the American Field Service exchange student in my high school. So it's been a long time! We were kindred spirits from the start. Nowadays we can enjoy our friendship online, and keep more current with one another. I can even enjoy her husband's little window garden and this gorgeous cactus flower that blooms just once a year, and the flower lasts only 12 hours.

The cat's name is Branco. I get the feeling he doesn't know that the flower is the focal point of this shot.
