Green Thumb Sunday


Join


Had you ever noticed the little "Valentine" at the end of the blossom, before? :-)

I've not posted a "Green Thumb Sunday" for awhile. I don't know where Mr. Brownthumb is, but I sure would like him to see my "Christmas Cacti!" My red one is outdoing itself right now!


The clarity of a couple of my photos is lacking, but I wonder if anyone could venture a guess as to how many buds are on this plant? :-)




I think the plants are trying to tell me they're about ready for Spring, too!
Last year they were on the front deck/porch where they got
some sun and some shade.
Hey! Another place where I can use my new Sun Calc to monitor the amount of light!

:-)

Happy Sunday!

I feel super by saying that this is one of the very best blogs I've ever visited yet.

Very pretty photos! Your Christmas cactus bloom circles around mine. :)

(I wish I knew where mr brownthumb is, too. Wherever it may be, I hope he's okay.)

Joshua, It makes me feel super, too. Thank you!

Kim, It's just "good fortune" that mine is blooming so well. ;-) I echo your sentiments on Mr. Brownthumb!

Hi, Deb! Isn't it great? Did you have a good-weather day, today? Our temps were in the 50s! And a bit windy, just like March is supposed to feel! ;-)

Dellits,
Thanks!! You can find these cacti all over, but closer to Thanksgiving or Christmas. I'll start you one! Love you back! AK

Carol,
I'm just amazed by it!
