Blooming again...........

I meant to take photos of the newest blooms during full daylight but forgot.  It was such a dreary day so I had lights on earlier than usual.  Even though this doesn't look like a white flower, it is.  I see 2 more buds on it too.
I don't remember if this is the second or third blooming of the champagne color cactus.  I have 2 plants of this color so it is harder to keep track.  There are 3 more buds on this one.

My company arrived safely and the snow didn't start as early in the day as they originally predicted.  I think the storm shifted a little farther to the north but it did start snowing around 8 p.m.

Very pretty color, mine are a fuchsia one and another with red blooms. I love those plants!

Lucky you with blooms now. Too bad you’re getting snow again. I did hear that Mother Nature is bipolar and is off her meds. And I believe it.

Glad your company arrived safely and the snow was less - my daughter said they had enough that son in law needed to get the snow blower out! April 18th I don't remember from my years in WI ever having so much snow that late in April - snow flurries yes but not where you needed to clear the drive way and sidewalks.

The champagne color is such a pretty one for the cactus. Hope the snow does not last long.

Beautiful cactus—I grow them too, but I have never seen this color. Lovely...

I think we are finally done with the snowy/sleety stuff and maybe even the nights below 32 degrees. Close, but not quite -- but at least we are beginning to plant the hardier plants in the yard now. Hoping your spring hurries and arrives SOON!!!

Your cactus always photograph so beautifully. I am so jealous... the plant I bought still does not show any growing progress. It does look alive, but does show any new growth and I bought it in Nov. or Dec. Am I expecting too much after 5 months ?

Your cactus have done you proud this year and a great photo opportunity for you. We had a very hot day today - 27c and the hottest day in Hull for 70 years. Too hot for me, especially when at the beginning of the week I was still wearing thermals! Hope you see some sunshine soon :)

Well I'm glad you titled this post 'Blooming again' instead of 'Snowing again'. We had a light dusting of snow overnight but it's gone now. Partly sunny, but still quite cold. My daffs are showing color. Maybe if we really get to 60° this time, they will burst into bloom.
I have several different colors of Thanksgiving and Christmas cacti, but none like your champagne one. I don't think I've ever seen one for sale around here. Must remember to look next fall. I also have an Easter cactus, but it has shown no sign of buds as yet.
