Thanksgiving Cactus, November 2018


It’s almost Thanksgiving, and my Thanksgiving Cactus is blooming right on schedule. Last year I purchased several plants that were labeled Holiday Cactus. That started me researching the difference between a Thanksgiving Cactus and a Christmas Cactus. If you would like to learn the difference, you can read about it in my posts from last year.


Here is a second photo of the same plant. It has many blossoms opening. I have several other Thanksgiving Cacti that are beginning to flower and I will post them as the blossoms open.

A Bright Yellow Lily


I love this bright yellow lily. I went to the gym Thursday morning, but after thirty minutes on the treadmill, I decided to stop my inside exercise and go outdoors. There was a light rain falling, but being outside felt so good. Seeing the above bright yellow lily was an added benefit to finishing my walk outside. I was glad I had my phone in my pocket and was able to take this photo.


This second beautiful lily was given to me two years ago and it has never failed to bloom. Every year when it blooms I am reminded of my friends kindness and generosity.

Pink Miniature Rose

Pink minature rose
My pink miniature rose is blooming. I love miniature roses. They give off a lot of color in a small area. In my last post I showed you my orange miniature rose. See it here. It was beautiful and I thought it was my favorite. Now that the pink rose is blooming I’m not sure which I like the best. Just wait until my red miniature rose blossoms. Then I may really have a problem deciding. Maybe they are all my favorite.
