Pretty colors. I tip my hat to you.
Any day you wake up on the sunny side of the grass is a good day.

Thanks guys. The colors on these blooms change over time, so the plant is fun to watch. A couple of shots here better showing the detail at the center.

And a couple of pictures illustrating a strange phenomenon where the cyathia on one branch are sprouting vegetative growth from the center, and thusly turning into new branches. Not something I have seen on my other crowns of thorns.

The very first Crown of Thorns that I ever had was a gifted plant, from my BIL!
Sadly, he passed away last night.

I thank you @baja_Costero , a beautiful banner to remember him by!
