Hello from Ten Gables Cottage,
I posted the Christmas Cactus plant with a few buds on it a few days ago, and now there are several blooms, just gorgeous. The pink one isn't budding yet, but this one is early. Not even Thanksgiving and here it is blooming. It is on the north porch and gets a lot of light, but not much sun. The blooms lasted a long time last year, so I am hoping it will keep blooming and the blossoms on it will last until Christmas.
The poinsettia is in the garden next to the guest house, and is one I planted there from a potted plant several years ago. Last winter it was nipped a bit by the cold and I pruned it heavily, so it is looking nice now and the leaves around the flower are turning red. The red parts are really not the flower, but whatever, they make the best show. The poinsettia is a bit early as well.
