Superb Jenn - memories of childhood for me. Both my mother and grandmother took pride in their Christmas cacti blooming in time for the season.

Nicely done, Jennn. Our Christmas cactus is also right on schedule. I'll have to give it crack but I don't see coming close to what you've done here.

Our Christmas cactus is blooming too. Maybe it realised that our Christmas has been cancelled?

We have several (they thrive on neglect which is a pre-requisite in our house TongueGrin) but none in this beautiful shade.
