    What plants do you have that bloom from now until it gets nice again outside? As those buds pop open, pop up a pic!

    Thanksgiving cactus (Schlumbergera truncata)

    I only have Christmas cacti flowering indoors at this time of year. Mine are peach, lemon, white, pale pink and dark pink.

    This is probably the exact same pink plant as above with the red one, but since it's another copy in a different pot, it's technically different, right? Cool, I knew you'd agree! Opened wide today.

    Eileen, that's the meat'n'potatoes of what I've got too. If you get in the mood for putting pics, I'd love to see them. I'm anxious to see if I have any other colors from trades this summer, I don't remember what I'm supposed to expect. At least 1 bud on about every cutting around here.

    Those are attractive plants, Purple. The colours are lovely and the foliage as well.
    Chapeau!

    Thanks! Here's another pic of the last plant with many more blooms open, getting a drink earlier today.

    Very pretty, Donna! I 'do' mostly Coleus instead of flowers in the shadier parts of the landscape. Always colorful!

    Kalanchoe x houghtonii blooms:

    This TC has red flowers that are whitish inside. That's a little different, cool.

    Flower is open all the way today. Looks like a candy cane I think.

    I bought two red Kalanchoe blossfeldiana and a few hyacinths last week. Other than that nothing's blooming here now.

    That sounds festive, Droopy! If you take some pics, we would love to see them.

    Me too, Cheryl!
