Do you ever experience a Dorothy moment? You remember Dorothy from The Wizard of OZ who could have gone home to Kansas at any time IF she had only realized the power of the ruby red slippers? Yeah, her.
Look who has flowers in her own home after all that complaining of yesterday! Me! Lots of them! Yes, there is one terribly confused Christmas cactus blooming by the patio door. It is not my plant; it belongs to my sister who has yet to reclaim it. The cactus has grown from a piece of my sister's first mother-in-law's mother's plant. (Got that? ;> ) It used to live in a south corner window above my sister's sink where it was very happy. When my sister moved here during another cold February, that plant bloomed like crazy. It must have been the shock of it all. I had no other place for it save a northeast window where it has survived, but not thrived sending out a few sparse blooms some years and skipping others altogether. I guess that all it has needed is a south window because I've not seen this many flowers on it in a very long time.
Happy Leap Day!
