The lonely little Christmas cactus flower

Some time this summer a piece of my Christmas or Thanksgiving cactus broke off and I stuck it into my Aloe cactus plants container. Today I was in the laundry room folding clothes and I noticed something pink poking out from the back of the container.  I turned it around and low and behold this lonely little Cactus blossom was smiling back at me.. It this not just the most precious little flower. Yes, I admit that it is totally dwarfed by the size of my Aloe plant as it is a very healthy specimen.
Now, this is the mother plant that it came from. It has just begun to produce its annual Thanksgiving day
explosion of beautiful little blossoms. Minus the one that found its way to the Aloe plant.  It has found a foster home.

I love getting little surprizes like that too. Now you can put it in its own pot and watch it grow :)
