I have two Christmas cactus plants on my front balcony. One is dark pink as in the photo and the other a pale pink.
The first plant to bloom was the dark pink. The end of last year it was the most prolific in all the years I have had it. So I decided to take a few photos before it faded.
A few seconds later, guess who showed up. Yes, Freddie, of course who has to be the star every time I take out my camera!
Needless to say, I didn’t get too many shots of the cactus.
The beginning of this year the light pink cactus came into bloom and was also the most gorgeous I have ever seen it. Unfortunately I did not have a chance to photograph it but above are the buds showing their promise.
That’s okay… we all know Freddie is far more beautiful than any old plant!
