Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Decorating for Christmas
All the stores have their Christmas decorations up, so having my Christmas cactus blooming now instead of in December is really not so unusual. It's all part of the early push to the holidays.
All during the summer and early fall I neglect this plant. It sits in the north-facing vestibule and I remember to water it about once a month. Then come October, I notice the buds and I tend it more and when the buds are more developed, in it comes to my great room and a south facing window. Here it is mid-November and it's glorious in its blooms.
See other blooms this month at May Dreams Gardens!
