Christmas Cactus

My Christmas Cactus is blooming and it is snowing!






I think tomorrow I will go out and take pictures of barns with snow!  I love snow pictures!

Linking to Green Day at Raindrops and Daisies



Thanks for stopping and have a great weekend!

Until next time

I am envious - I love your cactus blooms and it would be fun to photograph barns in the snow! Enjoy! Mildred

Yep, our Christmas cactus if full of blossoms too. Oh, how I would love to see some snow pictures. We were in the 70s today. Had no winter to speak of last year and this year is looking to be about the same! So bring 'em on!

I had a beautiful cactus that belonged to my mother. For some reason it didn't do well with the move. I'm hoping it's only temporary... :)
I hope you were able to get the soaps you wanted!
I've been so busy lately with orders and such, I've had little time to do anything. I just posted my blog... but I think it may be the last one for the month. I think I need a break!! :)
Enjoy your weekend!
Hugs, Lisa xoxo

So pretty! My mom always had Christmas cactus. Just lovely in the white ironstone. I might just have to go find myself one, too!

Hi Barb, what a gorgeous Christmas Cactus. How wonderful to have snow for Christmas. We will probably not see that here, so I will enjoy your snow pics.
Love your header too.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

My Mom loved Christmas cactuses--always had them blooming for the season. One of hers was huge! This post brings back memories. . .

Your Christmas cactus is beautiful!

The blooming cactus is so pretty, Barb. I must read up on them. I have one, but no blooms.

My mom has a Christmas Cactus & it's already bloomed this year... beautiful, Barb! =)

Tricia Hays said...

Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Mine is blooming now too- it always does when I bring it inside... not ready for snow here just yet. I have way too much shopping left to do.

andrea@townandprairie said...

Oh, Barb, send some snow my way. It was 68 degrees here last week and only 45 degrees today. Let it dump down, the ground is still so dry from summer. Hope your mom heals soon! Will she be in the home just temporarily?

Carletta said...

It's lovely!
My Mom got my daughter and daughter in law a cactus each. Dear DIL forgot to take hers home and it bloomed this week.
Please send snow! :)

Amy Burzese said...

Yes, barns in snow, please! That is a rarity in Alabama so I'd love to see yours.

Terrie said...

Mine is not ready. Love to see yours. Barn with snow will form a beautiful post card I'm sure. Can't wait to see.

Debbie said...
