Wren Nesting In Cacti

I just noticed this nest this morning. It was constructed very quickly as I watered the Christmas cacti last Friday before leaving for the weekend and there was no sign of it.
I heard the male wren singing while perched on a wind chime support on the porch this morning. I tilted the blinds slightly to get a better look at him and noticed the nest. The female flew from it just a bit after that.
I went out and examined it taking the pics at that time. There are no eggs yet but I'm hopeful to see some soon!
I'm reminded of a wren building a nest in a potted plant on our porch in Texas many years ago when my girls were small. It was exciting for all of us to observe the progress of the nestlings including fledging.
