You seem to have a great fondness for this type of plant. Are they easy to care for?

Beautiful flowers. I have a really big Christmas cactus, but I think mine is a little confused as it frequently blooms in the spring/summer as well as winter.Great shots!

I had Christmas cactus years ago. It is thrilling when they break into bloom. Nice photos.

I have a very happy Christmas cactus - it blooms nicely - but I've never seen a jade plant bloom. How nice!
