MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM OUR CHRISTMAS CACTUS – Marilyn Armstrong

Christmas Cactus at Christmas

It has continued to bloom and now, the second (pink) cactus has set buds too. I don’t think it will bloom before the holidays, but maybe by New Year’s. It’s hard to tell. The buds are fat but don’t look ready to pop.

Meanwhile, Merry Christmas from our Christmas cactus to yours — or you — depending!

  1. Thank you very much Marilyn (or the Cactus – depending. 😉 ) on behalf of Me and Mum.

    A Happy Health Holiday to you and the Wonderful Garry! ( and The Duke, Bonnie and Gibbs, of course!) 🙂

    1. Bob – thanks for a wonderul year of sharing laughter and woe. Wishing you and your Mum a very Merry Christmas, brimming with happiness, good health and sanity — from our house to yours. The furry kids also send their best.
      Time to lift our glasses and sing a rousing round of “Waltzing Maltilda”.

      1. I’ll drink to that! (An Aussie 12 yo Tawny Port – what they heck – It’s only Christmas once a year !) 🙂

        (Won’t be buying one of the full series of Grange Hermitage from our Penfold’s Winery (the ’51-’17). Sold one set last week for A$330,000. A bottle of the original ’51 sold for $50,000.

        Here’s hoping we all get our Christmas wish in 2019 – the removal vans queuing up down from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.! 🙂

  2. Lovely. My cactus gift bloomed like crazy. Flowers wilted and now the 30+ buds left are just withering up and falling. I’ve moved it to a different area to see if it likes the weather there better.
    Thanks for sharing yours!

      1. I moved mine from west window where shade are open during the day and mostly shady, to east window where light filters in through the closed shades. I checked this morning. Very sad looking buds. Oh well. Next year maybe.
