This blooming cactus is beautiful enough to share. It is called the Christmas Cactus but here it is November 1, and it is blooming. What is really amazing is that for 11 months of the year it looks every bit the dead plant. No sign of life what so ever. It sits there in the window looking like it should be thrown out. Then suddenly it comes to life again. Dead one minute and then alive and beautiful for a time and then it goes back to dead again.
We have learned over the years that if we give it a few drops of water every once and awhile, it will return to life at some point. Then it will be beautiful for a time and then the cycle starts over. So this is resurrection time for our cactus. The beauty of the flowers makes it worth waiting for. So thought we would share this time in the cactus' life with viewers.
