First off I would like to thank Beverly from How Sweet the Sound for hosting Pink Saturday each week. Click on the Image in the right sidebar to visit her site. I have been away from blogging for a while. I'm so happy to be back! You can catch up on my life while I was away in the So Many Updates post below.
Today I am blogging about my beloved Christmas cactus. I have been trying to get this poor thing to bloom for 6 years. I have re-potted it, put it in a dark place for several months, watered it and lovingly cared for it. It just wouldn't bloom. It has flourished in size but just no blooms...until now!
I think I have finally solved the problem, the location! I moved into my current house just over a year ago and found a nice window with indirect sunlight. I was told it should be in a southern facing window but this one faces the north. I suspected I would be bloom doomed again this year, but low and behold I have these beautiful pink flowers! I'm so excited! I have more buds appearing daily, a little after Christmas but that's okay with me! It's BLOOMING!!
Enjoy your day and stay warm if you're in the northern climates like I am. A foot of snow and temperatures in the teens...I want to live somewhere warmer than this! Hopefully soon!
