We don't have many flowers in bloom here for the winter, but Mom has three "Christmas" cacti that she wants us to share as part of Arty, Jakey, and Rosy's Flower Friday.
This is the newest one Mom has - she picked it up last year.
BUT it only has ONE flower. Mom says she thinks it is because it gets too much light at night from the family room. It sits on the counter that divides the kitchen from the great room. These flowers bloom best if they are kept in an area with very low light from mid-fall to early December. But even the solo flower is pretty to look at.
We have two other Christmas cacti that sit on the mantle over the kitchen fireplace.
Here is a closeup of the pink one. Mom just loves the color.
Here is the white one. It too has flowered nicely but Mom prefers the bright pink ones.
Here is a full shot of the pink one. It looks so healthy. The white and pink cacti don't get much light at night because the kitchen is pretty dark once dinner is done. It would be nice if these plants bloomed more often during the year.
Lastly we have a photo of some of the many flowers our human sister K has received from family and friends. They sure do a great job of lifting the spirits.
This one is very special as it was made by twin daughter C and her two neighbor friends. Their Mom had C over to play the day of surgery to keep her distracted from worrying about her Mom. The three girls cut out and pasted the flowers. The blooms are attached to uncooked spaghetti strands for stems. So pretty and so thoughtful:)
No flowers here, but we sure are enjoying our bonefest.
Lightning: Hmmm, are those looking to see who is going to steal MY bone or are they pondering a bone swap?

From Mom: The pups are happy that they have been able to get some posts up this week despite my busy schedule. Seems like there is always some down time while waiting for that washer to finish its cycles - those three grands can sure dirty a lot of clothes:) My daughter continues to do very well. Thanks again for all your support.
