A delightfully sunny day and flowers sure can make a day
seem so much happier.
I hesitate to share these photos because the windows are in desperate need of cleaning. It was only 19 degrees out so cleaning
the outside of the window wasn't an option.
I did a little reading on the "Christmas Cactus" and found out that there are other names like Thanksgiving Cactus, Crab Cactus and Holiday Cactus.
Actually now that I've done this reading I guess this is actually a "Thanksgiving Cactus". The asymmetrical growth pattern and the way it lays almost horizontal are different from true "Christmas Cactus" which are symmetrical and hang downward. (who knew?)
The genus is Schlumbergera
and this would be from the "buckleyi" group
Whatever it's name I am most pleased it is blooming for me! A nice colorful addition to this late winter month.
I dressed it out with a flowery ribbon as I'm doing a
little Easter decorating.
Might as well have something enjoyable to look at since the outdoor scenery still leaves a little bit to be desired!
As always thank-you for visiting!
