Foggy and damp definitely described the view out of the front window this morning. We could barely see any of the neighborhood houses. I went into our family room and turned on the electric fireplace. You can see it below. I love the way it cozies up the room.
Next I went to the kitchen to make my morning cup of coffee, in my snowman mug.
Before long, the sun broke through and I was out in the garden, checking on my plants. Not long ago I showed you my flowering Thanksgiving cactus. Well, now it’s the day before Christmas, and my Christmas Cactus is very close to blooming. You can see it below.
It always amazes me to see how these plants know exactly what to do. I ‘m keeping the Christmas Cactus inside for a few days, so we can enjoy the beautiful color up close.
My bright pink Thanksgiving Cactus is blooming. I previously showed you my white Thanksgiving Cactus and promised to share each variety as it blooms.
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.
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.
