Christmas Cactus

I have been so busy getting ready to travel to see grand babies and the gear is about loaded. It has rained for two days (and earthquaked!) along with feeling chilly. It is seasonal weather but...still my few deck flowers left are holding up to it all. Leaves clutter the boards and flower pots. Autumn is here.

Inside things are in the pink! A friend brought me this Christmas cactus this summer. I know nothing about them , and it seemed to break easily all summer. When the temp started dropping to frost range and there were tiny buds all over the plant, I moved it inside. It has burst into flower! I hope they last a long time, that there are buds on our return.

On such a dark, damp, and dreay day this is the only sunshine I found. I thought it worth sharing with you....before you have to look at all those baby pictures I will posting!!!!

Nature is so unexpected and beautiful. My outdoor potted flowers which nearly died this summer, are flourishing with new buds. and I am feeling sad to know that in a week or so they will be gone.

Going to see grandbaby is so exciting. Going anywhere sounds inviting.
