Bloom Day January 15, 2008

This is my first Bloom Day! I couldn’t help getting a little headstart on Sunday with my previous post about my abutilon. See my previous post – and the blooms in back of the Christmas cactus.
I don’t have much in the way of houseplants. There is so little room in our house which is fairly cool in the winter. However, I cannot give up my Thanksgiving and Christmas cactus. This is the larger of my two Christmas cactus, and the most in bloom at this point. The other is budded but taking its own sweet time about actually blooming. I think I kept them both out in our coldest room too long.
Being in that room is a testament to their hardiness, but it meant there were no flowers at Christmas.

    Despite there being no blooms at Christmas, better to have a January 15 Bloomsday than have to wait for the official June 16th celebration. See what happens when you read Finnegan’s Wake to houseplants? (and your blooms look splendid!)
