The Christmas cactus, Schlumbergera bridgesii, blooms later and has smooth stem segments that are smaller and scalloped along the edges. Its growth habit tends to be more pendulous or drooping.
The Thanks giving cactus, Schlumbergera truncata sometimes known as Zygocactus, or claw cactus blooms several weeks before the Christmas cactus. It has stem segments with strongly toothed or pointed edges that make them appear claw like. This cactus also appears to grow a little more upright.
As I write this there is a blanket of snow on the ground, the
roads are clear and the skies are blue. I have a fire burning
in the fireplace and an evergreen decorated for Christmas in
the corner. That's what I was hoping I would see when I
opened my eyes this morning! Instead I have a layer of
leaves still covering my yard. Fall does go on for a few more
weeks, then we can welcome winter officially.
I'm looking forward to sharing the holiday season with you
at our luncheon at Shannopin Country Club. Remember to
bring a gift if you would like to participate in the gift
Kate has set up Lunch outings for January and February,
