Magical Bloom

Christmas Cactus in Bloom, Digital potography

"Where flowers bloom, so does hope"  wrote Lady Bird Johnson in 'Public Roads:Where Flowers Bloom.'  Last month, as if on cue, soon after christmas, when we were buried in a snow storm,  this plant in our sunroom gave a spectacular display of beautiful deep pink blossoms.  Was nature laughing at her own wonders? No matter -  What a treat for us to see the magic outside as well as indoors!

How beautiful!! Those plants that bloom only occasionally are usually such exhibitionists, aren't they? Not that I'm complaining! :)

@Sanctified Spaces, Thank you -- I feel honored. Unfortunately, I am on travel (besides being sick too) so I have to wait till I get back for full scale blog posting. I appreciate your support very much!
