Best,

Beautiful photography of a beautiful bloom. Our plant like this in SA, only blooms in mid-winter:May. Love the selfie as well. Your header made me all nostalgic as it was exactly how my mum's decorations looked. Greetings Jo

That's actually the perspective flowers should be photographed in, since it's much more interesting then from above!

A beauty! I like the white one as well. My pink one is huge and has flowered once this year and is ready to flower again - maybe in the new year? (It's got buds).

Gail said...

I've given my cactus to Marcy. She has them blooming beautifully. I tend to kill them.

Ida said...

My mom has a white one but I don't think it has blooms on it this year. - Loved that you photo bombed yourself. They are very pretty flowers.

Ann said...

It's beautiful. Even though I have no green thumb I had a Christmas cactus that I kept alive for a long time. Of course it did eventually die but it held up better than most plants.

SweetMarie said...

So pretty!!! Why is it in the nursery? It looks healthy and beautiful!!!

EG CameraGirl said...

NICE! My Christmas cactus is rather slow this year. I guess I should be happy that it has buds. :)

Ginny said...

TOO funny!! I love seeing YOU, you are looking so concentrated! This is the prettiest one I have ever seen. Plant Nursery...is it Bob's or a retail one? I would think it is Bob because it is growing so wonderfully. It is abundant and glorious.

Scott said...

Well that's something you don't see too often. It's hard to photo bomb yourself. Too funny.

I see you've added a new requirement to leave a comment. Have you been getting lots of spam?

Ruth Hiebert said...

Beautiful flowers.I used to have a huge Christmas cactus,but I think it died.Probably happened when my green thumbs turned brown.:)

Eva Marie O'Brien said...

It's beautiful and I love how you've caught the drops on it. And the selfie is good he he

Linda said...

It is a beautiful Christmas Cactus! I had a huge one - it strated small as a gift from one of my Sunday School students YEARS ago!!! When my mother was ill in November we had a really hard freeze and I was in Fort Worth at the hospital with her. It was outside and looks totally ruined! I wonder if there's any possibility of it coming back?

diane b said...

Hee hee photo bombed your own shot. Great shots of this beautiful plant. I have a few on my deck but they are not in flower down under until winter. So we don't call them Christmas cactus but Zygocactus but its real name is Schlumbergera. (say that)

pattisjarrett said...

Love your header! (before I forget to mention it, again!)
Pretty flower, love the photo bomb!

photowannabe said...

I was going to post my Christmas Cactus today too. It went from one blossom last year to about 30 blooms this year. I have never had it bloom like this. Guess I will have to get on the ball and post it sometime today.
Love the photo bomb!

You captured it perfectly! Mine is blooming right now.
