A Christmas Cactus in the Morning Light

Hello everyone! I hope that you're all well and had a great Thanksgiving. We sure did!

Every year early in November, before there is a danger of the first frost, we move our houseplants from the screen porch into the house. Because many trees surround our home, we don't have a lot of sunny windows, so we divide the plants between Hubby's office and the downstairs guest room. This year I put our Christmas cactus in the guest room. I think it's actually a Zygote Cactus, but it doesn't seem to mind what I call it. I took the following photos on November 17th, but this sweetie is still in full bloom. I bought it as a tiny plant for a couple of bucks from Lowe's about five years ago, and it is now huge. I guess you could say it is happy inside for the holiday! I thought it just looked beautiful in the morning light. It brightens my day every time I walk into that room.

Do you have a plant inside your home that brightens your day? Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Your cactus is doing well! And I'm glad to hear that you had a good on to Florida for your early Christmas and bringing your father back to NC for the holidays! Safe travels my friend!
