"Bloom where you are planted." - Mary Engelbreit
This is the first time it has happened in several years...my Christmas cactus bloomed.
I am not the greatest with house plants, I tend to forget about them. With my reputation as a plant killer, my family was surprised this Christmas cactus survived so long...even wondering if it was a real plant.
About six months ago or so, I decided to schedule a weekly day of watering for my plants. I watered every Monday, usually. The effect on my several plants was noteworthy. I could see growth on some and even less leaves falling off one. There was a definite change for the better.
Then a few weeks ago we noticed a flower bud on the Christmas cactus. The hardy little plant survived the neglect and now with a few months of regular watering and a little light, it has one beautiful bloom.
This got me thinking...
What part of myself have I been neglecting? What part of myself could bloom if I give it just a little more attention?
On the first Sunday of the month I will be joining Sarah at PaisleyRain Boots and Lee at Sea Blue Lens for Scene and Story sharing a favorite photograph of the month and the story behind it. (I am a little early posting) Give them a visit and check out the other stories while you are there.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a great day!
