White Christmas Cactus

White CC 2
The white Christmas Cactus or Schlumbergera is beginning to bloom.   It has just a hint of pink in the petals.  I am joining Maia for Flower Macro Saturday   at Flower Macro Saturday.   Valerie

How beautiful! I just bought a small one last week, and it's loaded with buds. I have a red one and a hot pink one but have to keep them in a small guest bathroom where they get east light. Thank you for visiting my frosty candytuft. :-)

That is so lovely - I never knew that they came in white!

You've captured it Valerie in a very graceful pose with the little red part looking just like an arrow.

What a beautiful flower, I have had a pink cactus but never a white one mmmm I may have to look for one.

Comparing your cactus with mine, I now know that mine is not a Christmas cactus. What it is, I'm not quite sure.
