Magical mystery flower

This remarkable 3-foot-tall blossom appeared in the backyard last spring, crowning the top of a tall, spindly succulent that formerly passed its days quietly in a corner, giving no clue it was capable of producing such a flower. I'm hoping it will happen again, but I'm not counting on it. If you can create a work of art this magnificent even once in a lifetime, your job is done.

Ain't that the truth.
That's pretty much how I feel about my children. :-)

It appears that I have some work to do.
