  3. Here in Oz we call that plant Christmas cactus - which is odd because it's nowhere near Christmas here when it flowers. A splendid plant at any time.

  5. I have always only had Thanksgiving cactus. I love how they bloom during the season of gratitude.
    Your cranberry glass is divine.

  6. We have them here only we call them Christmas Cactus or Easter cactus, depending when they flower!
    Hope the snow isn't causing you too many problems, we saw on the news that the USA are having a bad time with it! X
