Christmas Cactus blooming!




I noticed one of my Schlumbergera cacti was blooming, so I moved it out from behind Doozey's stroller, and a myriad of other items blocking it's loveliness...and now it sits out prominantly displaying itself for the length of it's blooming duration. The faintly pink is in bloom now, and it's potmate is covered with darker red buds! I wish they were synchonized to perfection, but alas, they are not..

Oh yes, you want these blooms out where you can see them. They look so delicate in that pale pink fashion.

These blooms are so dainty looking with their tinge of pink! I added one of this color to my collection this year, but it was blooming when I got it and is done now. The one I've had a while now won't bloom until closer to Easter...she's so confused! This was a nice surprise to find hiding I bet!
