This is the season for flowers everywhere! Even some of my house plants are showing off.
These “stars” are on my Easter Cactus, which is late blooming this spring.
My Easter Cactus plant is quite the showoff this year. It started blooming shortly after Easter, with just three or four buds peeking through.
Those buds opened, and I brought the plant downstairs where we could enjoy the bright, red stars. Then I noticed another one or two, then more, till it’s been in constant bloom since!
These showy flowers are so cheery, I look forward to them each year.
The blooms are much different than the more common Christmas Cactus. This article explains difference in the different “seasonal” cactus plants:
