Thanksgiving Cactus for You #WordlessWednesday

Today, while I busy myself with some baking and cleaning, I want to share my Thanksgiving cactus in bloom with you.

This plant is commonly known as a Christmas cactus, but most Christmas cactus sold in stores are not true Christmas cactus.
A true Christmas cactus won't have points on the leaves.  Mine (I have three) have the points, although they aren't that visible in these pictures.   They didn't bloom much last year but this year - wow.
Two colors on two plants side by side.
My third Cactus - you can see the points better on this one.

Wishing my readers in the United States a Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow.  To all my readers, I am thankful for your continued readership.

  4. Beautiful. I love these but have never had much luck with them. Maybe I'll try again.

  5. I have a Christmas cactus too. I didn't know about the points so it is not a true one either. It is very old though. My MIL brought it with her when they moved from their tenanted farm to one they bought in 1955. We inherited it so I know it is at least 67 years old. It is in full flower now, it never seems to wait until Christmas. I put it outdoors through the summer where it has had a few accidents from unexpected high winds breaking parts off, but still it survives. I should try and remember to take a photo for my next WW.

  6. Very pretty! Well done close ups.

  7. Wow, I have never heard of Christmas cactus. I found all the images beautiful, thank you for enlightening me today... interesting post, and happy thanksgiving to you and your family:)

  8. Gorgeous! Mine are blooming, too! I love looking at them--especially against the backdrop of snow just outside the window! A little bit of hope...
