Cactus

Cactus

Christmas cacti are so named because they tend to bloom around the holiday season. Our Christmas cactus displays a delightful bonus bloom in February.

  1. Great closeup of a beautiful bloom. These plants are so forgiving and generous with their flowering. Mine seem to bloom randomly throughout the year. Sure helps brighten up a winter day as does your photo!

  2. Now I’m jealous. Daughter gave me one of these in December and it’s just sitting here. Doing nothing. I like the bright pop of color in your shot coupled with the softness surrounding it.

  11. Love the processing. The cold, crisp, white background is a great counterpart to the warm soft tones of the flower.

    This is the best image of a Christmas cactus that I’ve ever seen. Brought back instant memories of my grandfather and one of his hobbies, which as to propagate these plants.
