Rhipsalidopsis gaertneri

Rhipsalidopsis gaertneri (*whew* – what a mouthful!) is also known as ‘Easter Cactus’.

I got this plant as a cute, little cutting last year from one of my friends’ Moms (thank you, thank you, Lynn’s Mom!).  It has grown a ton, and seems very happy.  I’ve been excitedly awaiting this flower since the bud first appeared more than a month ago.  Today, it finally opened!  It’s beautiful, and pretty, and lovely, and all of those adjectives.
