white Christmas Cactus

Another house plant that blooms this time of year is the Christmas Cactus. The pinkish white blossom is airy with delicate petals and the stamens are a vibrant purple-pink. The color at the center of the mandala is from the stamens. I went to a lecture on gardening in Colorado yesterday- it was very good and reminded me of why I love gardening. And it makes me want to plan for new plants in all the micro-climates in my backyard. I can't wait for the garden catalogs that start arriving in January!
