Popcorn Blossoms



My confused little Christmas cactus refused to bloom during the holidays.  So, I was delighted a few days ago to discover white blossoms budding out all over, looking just like popcorn!  Now, beautiful white blossoms grace the ends of long chains of greenery, a fact that brings me much joy!

  1. Better late than never! Your little Christmas cactus might have gotten Christmas mixed up with Easter, La Tea Dah. But what a wonderful surprise to find the lovely white blossoms. Congratulations! Thanks for sharing. Sincerely, Susan

  3. Our Christmas cactus was confused this year too. Then it started to die after having it for about 25 years. I was so sad, but we saved part of it; however, Joey has not helped. He likes to attack it. Hopefully, it will recover.

  5. My 'Christmas' cactus bloomed just before Christmas and now it's blooming again. I think it must have decided to celebrate Easter, too. Not a bad idea - I like it.

  6. Mine is doing the same thing as Adrienne's. It bloomed just before Christmas and is now putting out brand new blooms. Love it! :)
