More inside blooms

The pink Christmas cactus is at the end of its blooming time.












Now that I know how to use the super macro on my camera, I have to practice with it now and then.







The orange cactus has a bud on it now.  I hope it decides to have more than one bloom.








I went to the sewing circle at church yesterday afternoon, and then on to a store to get my dad 2 new short sleeve shirts.  He only likes the western style with snaps and they are hard to find except at Farm and Fleet.  It was a tiring day so I only got 3 more rows of blocks made last night.  I am just fingernail pressing them and putting them back on the wall.  I will have to take them down and press them with an iron before I sew the rows.

shopping for your dad sounds as tiring as me shopping with my mom - she will only want one style and it is hard to find at times.

Very pretty Xmas cactus. You should get more than one bloom on the orange too. wow I just realised I have been reading your blog for a year. Started when your cactus was flowering last year.

Those closeups pics of the cactus are amazing! Beautiful definition.

Those close-up shots are fantastic! The close-up of the one pink blossom is so amazingly crisp that the edges almost appear outlined -- and the detail one can see on the petals is wonderful!

The 'quilt that won't be made', was pleasing to look at. And your gigantic photo's of catus was unbelievable, I wish you could see it all from my new computer screen.

It was good to learn you went to Chicago to see your daughter. Those times are special for sure.

Beautiful cactus blossoms. I have one bud on my cactus plant right now. I hope there will be more, and they ALL will actually blossom this year!
