Shadow Shot Sunday

Shadows of the still-blooming geraniums
outdoors on our deck,
decorated with the fallen oak leaves...

and the Christmas cactus blooms,
a sweet surprise
for the holiday season!

A beautiful cactus in bloom is so beautiful - we have some buds, but one opened on Thanksgiving. The subtle shadow and scarlet flowers are elegant and delicate - a lovely look at the holiday plant!

No kidding! Whenever a Christmas cactus blooms it is always a surprise! I hear they require specific things to be in place for them to bloom again as a houseplant. So, bravo(a)! How appropriate with the Advent Season kicking off this weekend.

We used to have a wonderful Christmas Cactus when the children were still small, and now they have their own children, so thanks for bringing back those happy memories. I love both your colourful shots.

Signs of the season, fallen leaves and Christmas cactus. The low autumn light makes the greaniums especially nice.

Hey Harriet said...

Perfect blooms for the holiday season! I wish I had a Christmas cactus in my home. They're so festive and beautiful!

Jane, You must have a green thumb - my Christmas cactus is just now beginning to think about pushing out a bloom, or two. LOL

Your photos are beautiful!

Hi Jane,
thanks for stopping Christmas cactus bloomed just before Thanksgiving, as it did last year.
Mine is much smaller than yours, but I love it. They are so pretty.

Happy Shadow hunting ~
