Just Around the Corner


It’s amazing when a plant suddenly blooms but this one in particular has special meaning; the Christmas season is upon us soon. When it comes to houseplants, I definitely break all the rules. Specifically with this Christmas cactus, it keeps chugging along year after year. Just when I’m not looking, at the oddest times, these beautiful reddish pink blossoms appear despite an absence of care. 

It’s just one of those flower moments to celebrate, often unnoticed if you aren’t paying attention. So like the coming of Christmas; a beautiful season to celebrate. As we ready ourselves for the hectic part of the holidays, pay attention to the season and the unexpected blooms. As Eli Khamarov reminds us, “The best things in life are unexpected - because there were no expectations.”

And for those who need a countdown, Christmas is how many days away?
