It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like ...

My annual sign of the holiday season was a little late this year:

First Christmas cactus bloom of the season.

This bloom is on the last Christmas cactus we have.  We used to have three or four of them growing at any one time but the past few years have seen my green thumb fade a bit.  Our last one is actually one my Mom gave me.  It was grown from a clipping of one of our original ones so it continues the decades old plant that has been in the Wife's family.  After this one stops blooming in the spring , or possibly sooner, I will try to start another cutting.  Hopefully I will be more successful than the past half dozen or more attempts I've made to propagate the old lady.
