Have been trying to get this posted for a while but lost the pic somewhere in the camera LOL nothing unusual for me. It's my Christmas cactus I wanted to share with you and the 2 angels that were included with my quilt. Just as proud of them as I was the Quilt. Again thank you. Hope you can see them well enough to appreciate them as I do. Keep me in your prayers please, am having some really bad days and SIL is driving me today to my treatment. Love you all Lillian

I'm a little slow on the go here, but please know I'm praying for you also. You and your flowers are doing beautifully in God's Eyes. hugs

This one is mine. I've been waiting for decent weather to take a picture.
My mother-in-law had one for years. When she died it had reached about 3 feet across and flowered profusely! Father-in-law kept it going, but when he died it was too big to move and none of us had anywhere big enough to put it. I took lots of cuttings. I put several in each pot and this is one of them. It doesn't grow very quickly (it is already four years old) but always flowers obediently.
Incidentally, over here we expect our Christmas cacti to be pink. Easter flowering ones are usually red.

I keep mine outside during the frost free months and only bring them back into the house a few weeks before Christmas. This seems to do the trick!

Couldn't comment this morning - it kept kicking me out of internet. I think I finally figured out there were massive updates going on in the background. I love your cheery little flower and especially the angels. Sorry things have not been great and still praying for good.

I'm praying for you daily. I hope things get better for you soon. Your cacti is beautiful. Do you keep it in a closet before time for it to bloom?

Oh!, I'm sorry to hear this Miss Lillian and I will continue to keep you upheld in our Saviour's arms. May this blessed time of Christmas keep your spirits lifted high. Love Chris

P.S. My Mum has all the other colours of these Zygo Cacti. Her favourite one is the Hot Pink!!!! They were a mass of flowers in Spring (only a couple of months ago).
