Flaming Katy - miniature zonal pelargonium - and early Christmas Cactus

Flaming Katy
Flaming Katy is one of the first miniature pelargoniums I had in my collection and it is has remained a firm favourite.   Semi-double dark pink flowers above dark green foliage, Flaming Katy was introduced in  2000 by Dennis O'Shea.   It flowers almost non-stop all summer and even flowers during the dark winter months - so real value for money.

Now that the days are getting shorter I have been bringing indoors, or into the greenhouses,  all the plants that have stood outside for the summer.  I keep my two Christmas Cactus and one Easter Cactus together in a shady spot.  When I lifted them to bring them in I found that one was in full flower already.  The second has a few buds, as is usual at this time of year, but this is in full flower.
