~ Christmas Cactus ~



 For two years now I've been watching and pampering my "Christmas Cactus" and this past two weeks it's been budding and blooming.
The color is turning out to be a beautiful pink.



This plant started out as a pinch from a friend and has been outdoors all this time.  I'm wondering if I'll harm it by bringing it into the house?

Any moment now it will be in full bloom and I'd love to have it on the table by the front door.
I put a colorful bow for the holiday season.
The flower pot is one given to me by my grandsons several years ago. 
It has written on it "I love you Grandma"


Amazing how it knew it was Christmas?
One more reason to smile!

I'll be linking to

Sandy, that's the healthiest Christmas cactus I have ever seen! What a beauty. Around here we can only grow them indoors, and they're about half that size. Yours is amazing.

It's hard for me to pass up buying another Christmas cactus or two when I'm shopping. Maybe in the sales afterward.... Love that salmon color!

I just love the coral pink colour of your Christmas Cactua blooms. Your plant looks fabulous in that gorgeous pot with the bow.
