Bloomin' Tuesday

This is a neighbor's plant.
Neither of us knows what it is,
but she was kind enough to share some cuttings with me.

It looks like some kind of succulent or cactus,
but other than that, I have no idea what it's called.

This is the first stage of blooms.
They puff up so much that they look as if they will burst!

Opening to an amazing display of enormous flowers!

They cover almost the entire plant.

Such an odd and interesting specimen.

The blooms only last a day or so,
but they are brilliant.

Please let me know if you can identify
 this garden wonder!
