Wish I could say this belongs to me, but is in a glasshouse in a local park.

I love going to the park and looking in the glasshouses.

It's great fun, isn't it? Pure "escapism"! :-))

Rather late to "resurrect" this theme but I've only just found this photo when I uploaded one of mine. When I clicked on the Christmas Cactus tag this photo appeared - along with mine from last year! At least I now know its botanical name!

I have Easter Cacti as well. I love the flowers of these Cacti! :-))

Here is a link to an interesting article in Wikipedia:
