Gift of Christmas Cactus Keeps on Giving

In the midst of the busy Christmas season, at a luncheon for special girlfriends, I received a gift----a Christmas cactus.



Numerous buds gave promise of spectacular blooms to come. 


They did not disappoint. 





On Christmas morning, several of the buds had blossomed into breathtakingly beautiful blossoms.


A rich, sumptuous deep pink color, they just about lit up the kitchen.




When the sun poured through the window right onto and through them, there was only one thing to do --- run for the camera.  


Sharing their  loveliness with my blog peeps was important. 




Hope you enjoy them!



DO YOU HAVE A CHRISTMAS CACTUS? IF YES, WHAT COLOR IS IT?

Hi Susan

Christmas blessings to you during this wonderful season!

Love your beautiful cactus. I have several and most are the bright fuscia, but I have one that is the palest of pinks.

It's snowing here. Hope that you are somewhere warm and cozy.

Yes, we have several! They bloom at varying times all during the year, too! Mostly a rose-pink color.

Yes I do mine is pretty much the same colour as yours but it flowers in June of course.
