Christmas Cactus

On Christmas I looked at the cactus next to the sink (where it gets the most sun in the winter), and noted no sign of blooms in spite of the name "Christmas Cactus".  But then I saw it!  One modest bud at the back.  Modest not because it was small, but because it was at the back, not demanding any attention, only noticeable when you are looking for it.  I've heard that moving a Christmas cactus results in blossoms dropping, so I haven't touched it.  A week later I managed to manipulate the camera to an angle which could catch its beauty as it begins to open.
