This And That

My Christmas cactus has flowered in a sad way. It has 2 buds and one flower. Only one of my 3 plants has done anything. Oh well I guess this is an off year.

Notice the wool balls trivet under the plant. I have thought about making one since I first saw one. This one I found at Trader Joe’s. I am not one to buy things that aren’t on my list but as I walked through the store I knew I would regret not buying one so I ran back and grabbed one. Now I think I should have bought 2.

Baking day got rescheduled to today. I got distracted yesterday with laundry and a phone call. Let’s hope today is distraction free!

    My daughter-in-law gave me a huge, gorgeous Christmas cactus last Christmas. It’s still huge and appears healthy, but it has shown no signs of blooming for Christmas this year. Not even a bud. 😞

  2. Better than no flowers, which is what our large one has. We have a small one of the same plant that does have flowers though. It’s all about the light and dark hours the plant receives. The small one sat in the kitchen window and had no disturbance of it’s night hours because it was shielded from electric lights by the window shade.

    We have trivets like that at Global Gifts, in the bright colors and also in natural. They are so cute!

    One flower is still a bright spot! Love the trivet! It would be tedious to make, but fun to have, glad you ran back for it!

  9. It is a beautiful flower! Mine didn’t even get buds. I can see little dots of color at the end of some of the leave, but no buds or blooms. I am hoping I can keep it alive this year and maybe have some blooms next year. Love the wool balls trivet. So cute. Merry Christmas. I hope yours was a wonderful one.

    I found a Christmas cactus last month! At TJ’s! I was walking by the plant stand which is always outside and I saw the plant and wondered if it was what I thought it was. It’s doing pretty good. Several flowers have flowered already.
