Christmas cactus and cherubs....


The Christmas cactus...


...started blooming weeks and weeks before Christmas


Long before the Christmas decorations were put up.


And it's still going strong.


The cherub planter and Christmas cactus are sharing the windowsill...


...with the Christmas decorations right now...


...but in a couple of days, when Christmas is packed away in bins, the planter will once again be the focal point in this little window, as it is eleven months out of the year.


I wonder if it will miss the Christmas decorations? Or if it prefers having the window all to itself...

The planter is so lovely! I always think of my Mom when I see a Christmas Cactus - she always grew one and they were quite beautiful! Have a wonderful New Year, Donna! I am so, so glad we are friends. I wish you only the best in 2010.

Love the Christmas cactus in your cozy window.

I am blessed to have one that belonged to my husband's beloved Aunt Rose. When she passed away and I was given the chance to pick something...well, there was nothing else I wanted more.

Now I talk to it and when I call it Aunt Rose my granddaughter lifts an eyebrow and shakes her head.

It like the spotlight!
