I have a cactus that I've owned for over forty years that has an identical flower but the plant itself is covered in very sharp three quarter inch spines. It flowers pretty much all summer long and is just about care free. The flowers are 2-4 inches across and only last 24 hours and fade quickly. When the flowers first open they produce the most beautiful fragrance but this fades with the passing of the day. I'd love to know what kind of cactus this is.
