The latest additions were added August 23, 2002. We had one large blossom on our organ pipe cactus. The bud grew very rapidly and opened during the evening. I believe this flower opens only once and at night. I got up early so I could take some pictures by available light. You can see the flower already closing in the picture taken from the side.
