PLACE: Dad’s house
SUBJECT: Christmas cactus bloom
We think this Christmas Cactus is at least 55 years old, if not more. My Dad says that it was at my maternal grandmother’s house when he was dating my mom back in the early 1960s and Grandma D-- had it for some time before that. Dad keeps it on a northern facing window seat where it gets indirect light – apparently it likes it there as it blooms every year, although some years it has more flowers than others. ~*~*~ We (me, SD, DQ, DQ’s BFF-Erin and my sister and her two kids) were at Dad’s tonight visiting and mooching some dinner – Chinese take out – then we introduced Erin to the joys of playing dominos. I was the big winner.
