RED CHRISTMAS CACTUS – Marilyn Armstrong

Red Christmas Cactus Blooming FOTD – 05/15/19

I’ve been taking pictures as the blooms budding and as they open. It has been pretty spectacular. This morning, it was amazing. For reasons of pure laziness, I shot these two pictures with my 100-300 lens.

I was very surprised at how well they came out.

Remarkably, it worked really well. I got exactly what I wanted, which was the entire plant in context with the other plants by the window.

I got it!

      1. I had a chance to go out and do some gardening today. Didn’t need a winter coat and it wasn’t raining. I was able to prune and feed the rose bushes. It’s a good thing because they are budding and needed to be pruned. So things are looking good outside. Inside my cactus and orchids are very dormant. Just came in at about 3:00 pm and now it’s raining…..
