Peach Christmas Cactus Bloom

 

Christmas Cactus soft

The Peach coloured Christmas Cactus (Schlumbergera x buckleyi) just bloomed.   I love the salmon pink in the petals with the bubble gum pink in the stigma and pearl like stamens. 

I am joining Lisa for The Creative Exchange.   Have a great day.  Valerie

I don't think I've ever seen a peach Christmas Cactus, and this is truly gorgeous Valerie! I absolutely love the way you've photographed it. So nicely done!

Thank you so much for sharing today at The Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful evening!

Oh, this is so dreamy! I love the soft focus!! I have a red plant and a white one, but I have so little natural light in the house that I have to grow them in the little bathroom. ;-) West light! Your photo is just wonderful.
