A Cactus for All Holidays!!



You want a plant that celebrates every holiday?? I got it!! 15 years ago I bought a "Christmas Cactus" and it did bloom every Christmas but a little over a decade ago---2008 to be exact--the cactus was in bloom for my 18th Leap Year birthday and each succeeding year it seemed to bloom for another holiday!!

This year it bloomed for Rosh Hashanah and and on Yom Kippur (see lower right picture) one white bud started to bloom! I can show you pictures from Easter, Passover, New Year's Day, Halloween, St. Patrick's Day, Memorial Day,, etc., of my "Christmas Cactus" in bloom.

It obviously will be in bloom for the first day of Autumn and, certainly, Thanksgiving. Wonder if next year it will add Mother's Day, Father's Day and Grandparent's Day 'it' being the Christmas Cactus as it was introduced to me but I really mean Mother Nature--she is always amazing me!
