Finally Blooming ... I am so excited!

The buds on my Easter Cactus finally opened. My daughter says she likes these blooms better than the Thanksgiving or the Christmas cacti we have. I love them all.

Wow those are pretty,

I too prefer these flowers to the thanksgiving cactus.

I want one of these but havent found any in my neighborhood so far (SE Mich, Ann Arbor).

Thanks everyone for the nice comments. I am really excited about my new holiday cacti. I hope I can get them to rebloom next year.

elkay -- From what I have read and from the shape of the segments (pointed), I would say you have a beautiful Thanksgiving Cactus. All the retail stores now market them as Christmas Cactus because they bloom earlier than the true Christmas Cactus. I found the following website very helpful.
