Blooming miracles...

I don't know how this poor cactus survived! Between Lola picking "Shadies" - her word for flowers....

And Pollyanna exploring and grazing on anything within reach.....


This holiday cactus managed to keep a few buds and actually BLOOM!


I thought i would take a picture since who knows how long this will last!

Thank you so much for posting these pictures, Mare... it reminded me of one just like this my mother had- it bloomed for the longest time!! She was so proud of it, because she was in a wheelchair by then and really not able to care for any of her plants... but this one seemed to flourish.

beautiful flower. I love plants esp orchids. They bloom colorfully in my garden. Visit my page to see them.

Thanks Paula and Lili. My Grandmother had lots of these cactus in her home and they bring so many good memories to me too. I'm glad you enjoyed the blooms!
