Yummy flower!

I'm thinking I may have to switch to blogger to get comments going on my blog.

How do you make a crying face with emoticons?
I liked Tumblr.

Have a good one!

What a gorgeous color! I have one of these that is a magenta pink, but nothing like the coral of yours. I have some slips that were sent to me that I'm just starting, but they'll take years to get to flowering age.

So beautiful!

That looks like what my Mom always called a "Christmas Cactus," I think? The bloom is just gorgeous, and so are your photos. I think she used to tuck them under the bushes most of the year, and bring it out into the sun to an inside window during the Winter.

Hi Everybody...Some of these cactus(which are really succulents) are so old...But they never fail to bloom for me at least once a year. Yes CM, they are referred to as Christmas Cactus, but now they have Easter cactus and Thanksgiving cactus! hahaha Claire,i have a whole pot of differnt kinds of "slips" planted and so you never know what color will be blooming!

what a gorgeous peachy-pink color! It brings back memories of my mom and Grandma, who always had huge Christmas cactus that they grew for years... unfortunately I can't figure out how to keep them alive here in AZ, so I'll have to content myself with looking at your beautiful one!!
