It’s pretty much in full bloom, but despite all logic and reason, the red one is making new buds. These are the most blooming Christmas cacti ever!
Having just recovered from a major blooming of the scarlet Christmas Cactus, the pink one is coming into a heavy bloom of its own. Unlike the red one, it only threw a few flowers in season, but now it’s got a lot of buds, one flower fully in bloom and another about to burst for tomorrow.
I think the big one is nearing the end of its run, but I noticed today that the smaller one is full of buds too. So maybe we’re going to have a few more weeks of flowers.
I assume they will be pink rather than red, but sometimes the pink one has red flowers.
I have no idea why.
I’m going to miss this cactus when it finally stops blooming. Fortunately, I have a getting-ready-to-bloom orchid pushing its way upward.
Just about when the cactus finishes, that should be full of buds. I hope!
I’m going to be at the hospital today so I won’t be answering comments or writing anything until tomorrow. Sorry!
I’ve been dealing with snow and birds and hungry squirrels, but today I took a look at the cactus and I was actually impressed. I’ve had this cactus for more than a decade and never has it bloomed like this. It has always bloomed, but never fully. Never so many flowers and buds.
It looks absolutely beautiful against the snow on the deck. I’ve been trying to get a good picture of it, but the light coming in from the door does strange things to the flowers and their colors.
I think these two are the best of today’s bunch!
I picked up the camera today. My shoulder actually hurt more than yesterday and it was obvious that I needed to shoot. I realized as I spent all day shooting, then processing photographs, that the problem isn’t the camera and its weight. It’s these all day workouts on the computer.
I’m not sure what I can do about it because when you shoot, you are going to process … and if you take a lot of pictures — and Garry took quite a few today too — you are going to process a lot.
If anyone has an answer for how to do this without all the crippling side effects, let me know. My wrists, shoulder, neck, and back will thank you.
There are a lot of buds waiting to open soon, too. So there will be more!
I think I might be able to hoist the Big Lens tomorrow, but for today, it’s all about the Christmas Cactus which is blooming its heart out as February is ending. Maybe it will bloom continuously. It certainly seems able to do it.
Really, this little cactus has been blooming pretty much since last Thanksgiving. It bloomed through Christmas and most of January.
Suddenly, it’s blooming again.
