Macro Monday: Christmas in March?

I’m going to take it as a sign of hope…my decades old Christmas Cactus is showing signs of life after months of…just collecting dust. Lots of dust. Perhaps the fact that I recently gave it a brief shower in the kitchen sink helped. And a shot of fertilizer while I was at it.

My reward? This morning I noticed a BUD…in the sun! Even if it’s the only flower that shows up on my aging plant, it will be a welcome bit of color as we wait for Spring.

  1. What a lovely gift! I don’t think I have ever really noticed the texture of my cactus buds that closely before. I really like how out of the darkness comes all that colour.

  2. I’m jealous! I’ve revived my ailing Christmas cactus after kind of ignoring it for some months, but haven’t been rewarded with a bud (yet). A sign of hope that bud is!
