I found this blooming outside my kitchen window today.
What a real beauty!
It has a very faint sweet scent and the petals are like silk.

WHITE CACTUS BLOOM
After eight years this columnar cactus in my yard expressed its first bloom with a very light fragrance and lasting only 24 hours. A little internet research helped me find the botanical name: Trichocereus brevispinulosis a native to South America also known as part of the Echinopsis spp. family of cactus.
