Q.Can Anyone Identify This Houseplant?

I was pleased when this houseplant unexpectedly came into bloom. It’s possibly a succulent with cactus-like leaves. A curious feature is that the flowers emerge from the tip of the leaf, as can be seen in the photo I’ll try to post. Can anyone identify the plant?
