My first orchid cactus bloom

I bought an orchid cactus last fall and waited anxiously all winter for spring to arrive and the first blooms, since I was told by the lady who I bought it from that it blooms in the spring. But there were no buds this spring although the plant was thriving. Then about a week ago, the first bud appeared. And finally today the first bloom opened! And it's a beauty and well worth the wait. I don't know if there will be more buds this late in the season but I'm happy there was at least this one!
