Blooming plants inside and out

We have this Christmas cactus on the windosill over the sink. it blooms beautifuuly when it is suppossed to, between Thanksgiving and Christmas but then the silly thing keeps putting out a few buds every few weeks after that. this last bunch of flowers came out just a few days ago.
Outside the Asian pears are beginning to bloom. This is an especially pretty little tree with yellow green leaves bordered in a reddish color with the pretty white blossoms. Our oldest daughter has been giving us trees for our birthdays the last several years. Both of our birthdays are in the two weeks after Christmas so no one is particularly interested in parties, etc. We love getting the trees. She's sent us several apples, four hazelnuts, several Asian pears and a peach, a pluot (a cross between an apricot and a plum) and two tea bushes over the years.
