Christmas Cactus Countdown Continued!

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” – Albert Einstein

As christmas nears, I hope you are taking time to be with family and to notice the miracles around you.  My christmas cactus has always been a miracle to me.  Just when I am in need of buds and blooms, it brings them, so I decided to share that miracle with you this year.  This is week two of my Christmas Cactus Countdown.  Here are a few of the pictures from this week.  Enjoy!

I must say, this picture is not doing it justice.

Here are some particularly special buds:

Some particularly large buds (especially compared to last week).

And, just for fun, here are a few more shots.

Look at all those Blooms!

Sitting Happily in the Sunlight!

Want to see the progress?  Check out the post from last week here.  Make sure you subscribe to follow along.  You never know when it will bloom.

Leave a comment to share your miracles with us?  Have you put up christmas decorations that you’d like us to see?  Any great recipes?  Do you have your own christmas cactus?  Please join in the fun!
