LAST CACTUS FLOWER OF THE SEASON – Marilyn Armstrong

Flower of the Day

I got two blooms on my Christmas cactus. The first flower closed up this morning and the second opened this afternoon.

By the time I remembered to grab my camera to take some pictures of what is probably the last flower for this year, it was late. Close to dark, really. A very dim light in an east facing doorway and I wondered if anything would come out. I could have turned on the lights, but that would have distorted the colors and I don’t like flash.

Not only do I need new glasses, but I was shooting in very low light and a bit too close for that light level. 

I’ll try to take some sharper pictures in the morning when the sun is still in the sky.

  1. I LOVE how they turned out. Spectacular to my eyes. I was going to say, very late for Christmas Cactus isn’t it? Although when I had one several years ago, it was want to do its own thing whenever, which was agreeable to me 🙂

          1. I love your front window. That is so special. The light the better I say! I’d have skylights in every room if I could (if the neighbours were too near) but you have a view that is so special, as in NOT neighbours. roflma love trees. The cow was a nice touch 🙂
