Breaking The Rules


This is my Christmas cactus breaking the rules blooming in the Spring.
I am all for any bit of rebellion that is beautiful and brings a smile.
It is not a total rebel though, it only has one flower;
a big beautiful flower that makes me smile.

  1. Papa Bear’s Christmas cactus is full of blooms right now. I think it is totally confused by our hot-cold-hot-cold weather, but like you, I find those lovely blooms so cheering! I love your white one, I need to find like that to give to Papa Bear!

    1. This is the first time it has had a spring flower for me, but the friend who gave it to me said it usually bloomed at Easter for her. If you were closer I would give you a cutting. I just potted two pieces that were broken off the plant. They were in water for about 3 months and now have a pretty good root system going so they should do fine.

  2. That’s so funny that your cactus isn’t a total rebel since it was only brave enough to push out one blossom. I think it’s the opposite. I think it’s that blossom that’s the rebel, forcing its way out despite the cactus’s strong objections. That’s one tough and determined little bloom!
