pink and green

One of my favourite colour combinations.

One of the things that I've grown to love about taking and sharing my pictures is that it has made me take notice of the light and other details that I might not otherwise notice. Those are rhubarb leaves in the second picture - I had no idea that they had that beautiful pink edge until this morning.

And those crazy Christmas cacti of ours bloom five or six times a year. I love it. (I think they thrive on neglect - I certainly haven't given them any special treatment.) There's a yellow one in the pot with the coral one, but it hasn't been quite as happy as the others. I'm hoping that it comes back. What's blooming at your place?

  3. Isn't it funny when Christmas cacti bloom? They seem to have a mind of their own and no sense of which month Christmas actually falls in! Happy Earth Day!

  4. Christmas cacti reminds me always of my mom; she used to grow a million of them. I may have to get one in her memory. :}
