On this November Garden Bloggers Bloom Day I only have a promise. I just brought my little Thanksgiving cactus (Schlumbergera truncata) in from the unheated Great Room. Now that it is in the warm I think it may actually bloom on the appointed day. Early in my blogging career (almost 6 years ago) I was assured that ‘buds count.’ Lucky for me. I visited a neighbor recently and her beautiful pale pink Thanksgiving cactus was in full glorious bloom.
The big beautiful Christmas cactus (Schlumbergera bridgesii) in our bedroom, which is very cool, is also budded, but the buds are so tiny that they do not photograph. I think there will be a magnificent show by Christmas, perhaps even by December Bloom Day.
All Thanks with a capital T to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for hosting Garden Bloggers Bloom Day all these years. She has given us an opportunity to create our own record, but even more to visit all manner of gardens and garden rooms during every season.
