There was a time when I would take the boys to the grocery store with me and they would ask if we could buy a plant. Actually, most every time I take the boys to the grocery store they continue to ask if we can buy a plant. One word (of many words) people would not use to describe me is ‘gardener’. So, the fact that the three plants the boys brought home with them over a year and a half ago are not only alive but also thriving is…a Christmas miracle.

Way to go Joe and Charlie, these plants are beautiful. Christmas Cacti are one of my very favorite Christmas flowers.
It’s so pretty seeing the different colors bloom at once, Libby. I wish the picture did the beauty justice.
Nice! These are so pretty. Whatever gift you have, or don’t have, it’s working. 🙂
I tend to leave the plants alone, Patti. I don’t want to mess up a good thing. 🙂
The plants are lovely, Lenore. It is surprising to me that the boys ask for plants. Go Joe and Charlie!

The fact that the boys ask for plants surprised me, too, Maxi. It is easy to say ‘no’ to requests of candy and other junk food. But how does one say ‘no’ to requests for plants? Smart kids, I guess. Blessings to you, too.
So next summer when I do my landscaping here at the bungalow, they can come be my garden elves. Yes?
BB aka BD
Oh yes, yes, yes. How wonderful it would be to stop by your Bungalow while we are at the Shore. Hmmm…trips to the Shore on back to back Summers is not a common thing for us due to finances. Alas, a chance to visit the BD’s Bungalow is a nice incentive to save the pennies and make it happen! Have plants – will travel.
These things… really… do… bloom?!
I thought that was just a myth!
What movie is that from, Robert? Help a girl out.
You’ve completely stumped me, Ms. D!
For all the movie quotes I use you would think I’ve actually seen a few more movies!!!
Now I am wondering if it is from The Muppet Show. I’m not very good at remembering the sources of my entertainment. *sigh*
I love my Christmas Cactus. It reminds me of a beloved relative who had a very large one. Now mine, which began as a start from a friend’s plant is enormous and blooms twice a year, once around Easter and then a full blown bloom around Thanksgiving. And I have a very black thumb.
Your black thumb comment cracked me up, Linda. I do, too. Truly. I am grateful these are hardy plants. That’s the only thing that makes sense to me and their survival.
They are gorgeous, Diane. Keep up the good work.
Thank you, Susan. They seem pretty sturdy. That works to their favor. 🙂
