It is almost Thanksgiving, but the Christmas plants are already blooming! My white Christmas cactus is always earlier than the pink one, so it already is full of bud and has one big blooming hanging down. I have heard that you shouldn't water them when in bud, as the buds will drop. Does anyone out there know if this is true?
The poinsetta I planted after Christmas last year are blooming, too! Poinsetta are tropical, so I guess that is what they are supposed to do! In my view, one can never have too many poinsettas and I plan to get some light pink ones and some white ones this year, too, but of course, red is always the most striking! Which is your favorite color?
This one is really red and to my delight a wild white periwinkle just happened to come up right behind the red poinsetta. Ah, nature!
It's a glorious day here today, in the 70's, beautiful and sunny with a nice breeze.
By the way, for you who don't know...I have another blog, where I show my paintings and try to post one every few days. Check it out at http://egrettawells.blogspot.com/ . I am excited, too, because I will be showing my paintings now in my own gallery at DailyPaintworks.com
Hope you are having a great day!
