Xygocacti in bloom



It's the time of year when the Xygocacti bloom. They fascinate me. These pictures were begging me to share them, so after resisting for awhile, I gave in and here they are for you. It's a day for flowers in our house anyway, and when I saw Wordsworth's Daffodil poem on Chriss' blog, that clinched it for me about these pictures. Hope you like them.


UPDATE: Thank you, everyone, for your kind comments about the loss of my friend. I truly appreciated it.

Susan, your Grandpa Frank’s sister, Dora, grew what we call a Christmas Cactus at her home in Washington state. Somehow I got ahold of part of that plant some 40 or 50 years ago and it is still robust and healthy and flourishing and has gorgeous blossoms for us every year. Also I still have a pothos plant that your Grandma Lorna was given when she left Lincoln School in Fresno in 1953. It has produced many offspring. Plants are amazing in their ability to provide continuity to the past.
