This is one of my house plants which has just flowered in the last week and has some most beautiful but delicate pinkish white flowers. What a great way to celebrate Spring which is here for sure.
However this plant is called Christmas Cactus as it flowers every December around Christmas time. As far as I know Christmas is another 9 months away and I have yet to see any crackers or tree lights for sale in my local store (though they seem to get them out sooner every year – I saw some in August last year).
This cactus plant was gifted to me as a house warming present a few years ago and imagine my delight and wonder when these beautiful pink flowers suddenly appeared in December – little things please me.
However I am now as perplexed as this plant clearly is. Why has it decided to grace us with these new flowers just three months after the last batch? Is there a message here for us?
Global warming is here for sure!
We should be concerned – very concerned. Cactus plants could take over the world 🙂
