Signs of The Season

I love Christmas (and/or Easter) Cactus. I am mesmerized by them and have very good luck at propagating them. I thought this fixation was something fairly recent for me but my friend, Maria - who is the repository for my early memory at times - reminded me that I have loved them since she met me (when I was about 20). This particular plant has both peach and white color blossoms - so I suspect it was a hybrid to begin with and I am , for some strange reason, uncovering it's parentage! I have red, white, pink and peach colored buds just waiting to bloom. Their blooms always remind me that the holidays that are fast approaching. Such sweet messengers they are!

Hi Marie, looks like you saw a lot more of Tacoma than I did. A lot more nature too!

Love your flowers and good luck with the felting. I went to a workshop once and got all excited about making felt beads. Then it turned out to be a lot more work than I thought -- isn't it always that way? I think the felt stuff is still sitting on shelf in my studio, but at least like most things there, it add a lot of color to atmosphere!
