Thanksgiving Cactus – Shrimp Colored

My old Christmas cactus bit the dust last year. I asked someone in my family that shall, by request, remain nameless on all my social media, to find me one to go in my pretty pot. Well, a friend of her’s instead of giving me a start, gave me her bushel basket cactus. I didn’t know until last Thanksgiving what color it would be and I was surprised when it bloomed out pinky-shrimpy colored. It was really pretty! Well, it survived another year and it is blooming at school this week right before Thanksgiving. The kids get a kick out of watching the blooms open up. It’s not as pretty as last year yet, but there are more blooms on the way. Happy Thanksgiving Cactus!Nov 003 cactus 1
