An amazing thing about tax season is that it starts in winter and spring just kind of happens before you know it. I usually stay "seasonally challened" until May, when I finally notice that spring is here and summer is around the corner!
I really stayed confused this year when in March my Christmas cactus bloomed and my one poisettia plant was looking better than when I got it at Christmas time.
The poinsettia wa given to me by a woman who adopted some of my baby finches. I have never kept a poinsettia looking good this long! It's in a nice sunny place in the living room. I think I'll move it outside now that it's warm so it won't feel like Christmas in the house :)
The poor little Christmas cactus was started by my mother from a leaf of a huge plant my Grandma grew. I remember it on her porch when I was growing up. Anyway, the one little leaf just grew and grew and did fairly well for a number of years. Then it took a turn and by last summer it was almost dead! I don't know if it was the move or my lack of proper care, but I repotted what I could salvage in a self watering pot made for violets. Now it's thriving again and bloomed in November and March!
It feels good to be back on my blog. Everyone take care!
