This is some kind of holiday cactus. I don't know if it's a Christmas, Thanksgiving or Easter Cactus, and apparently it doesn't care, because it's blooming now.
I've had it for a long time and it usually has a few blossoms, but this year it's showing off with 41 lovely flowers.

I think the color is wonderful. The little bit of salmon with the pink really sets it off.

Here she is, almost close enough to kiss.

Here's a Macro shot. Click to enlarge and see the sparkles in her petals.

I put this plant with several others out on my back deck this spring. There is a northern exposure with early morning and late evening sun. I think she likes it!

My next post will be another plant that did my proud this year.

"Jesus loves me this I know, All my flowers tell me so!"
