Christmas Cactus

Every year at the December admin meeting, the Division Administrator gives everyone a small plant.  Six or seven years ago, we received cacti.  I took mine home and transplanted it into a 4″ terra cotta pot and it hung in there as best it could.  I finally moved it to the window sill in the loft, which gets the most light in the house.

My little cactus began to grow. Last year, one pink flower appeared.

This year, well, I haven’t counted, but it has bloomed like mad.  I took this photo on Thanksgiving Day, when I saw it was on the verge of blooming, with my trusty Canon Rebel and set on the portrait setting.
