Ready to bloom.......

This is the same cactus that had one pale pink bloom while it was still outside.  Now there are 20 more buds, some ready to open, some really tiny.  I also have buds starting on the 2 tone pink and white one and on the all white one.  These are the same 3 that bloomed early last year.  I have one more that is pink and white and it doesn't have any buds yet.  I should have fairly constant blooming from now until Feb. with all of the different varieties.  The red ones don't usually bloom until at least late November but I thought I saw a bud on one of them too.

Today is church sewing circle and we will be starting on felt Christmas stockings.  The Sunday School kids were going to pack the 38 school tote bags that we made.

Watching your Cactus bloom, makes me want another one. I thought I could pick one up.... cheaply last year... but nope... didn't see any I would pay full price for. I'll have to look closer this year... assuming we get a budget and we see a paycheck soon!!!

Wanda I do look forward to seeing the progression of your Christmas cactus collection from bud to flower - I haven't grown any for ages but seeing yours makes me think perhaps I should.

I can't believe you have blooms already. I guess it is time to bring mine back in the house: it is still putting out new leaves. I am just amazed that it is still alive....a first for me.
