Now You Bloom??????

I've had this Christmas cactus for several years. And it's never wanted to bloom. No matter what. So I sort of forgot about it, and stopped watering it.

And then it produced one single bloom, right in the middle of all our March bleakness!





There's hope for us all, after all! (except for maybe the weather pixie.)

Too funny! It's always nice to get a bloom, though, and such a pretty color!

So gorgeous. I'm glad it finally bloomed.

Those plants are so unpredictable - yet my mom always had several. They rarely bloomed at Christmas; but when they do, oh so pretty!

Poor Weather Pixie - hope she digs out soon.

Beautiful! And I know how it feels. I need to cattle prod and legal action to force me to bloom. :)
