Thursday In Winter Garden

It's the time of year that
this Cactus blooms.
Isn't it beautiful?
This particular plant belonged for years to my Grandmother.
It's in an antique (the pot must be from the 40's,
perhaps even the 30's) pot.
My Grandmother has been gone since 2002.

Boo keeps an ever watchful eye over all of the
comings and goings.
We hope everyone has a wonderful Winter garden!


  1. Such a beautiful bloom, captured perfectly.
    Love that profile of Boo.

  2. As always, our garden is a drab, muddled hot mess! It would be worse if my human tried to do anything with it.

  3. What an amazing bloom! And how wonderful to see this time of year when it is all dark and gray. Yes, we had the house lights on at 2:30 this afternoon because the sky was so dark.

  4. How marvelous that you have something living from your grandmother! Truly wonderful! What a blessing.

  5. Two words from an Emerson quote are "scatter joy." Those words have been used by many and if you Google, you'll get lots of business links, see lots of wonderful art work.

    But those two words, "scatter joy," are what your floral photos do, IMO. They certainly bring *me* joy, and even though I don't comment every time, I'm grateful for your posts.

  6. Miss Boo the cactus is lovely but your profile is breathtaking.
    Hugs madi

  7. Awwww Miss Boo! You are looking so reflective! We love your grandma's beautiful flowering cactus! Wonderful! take care

  8. What a lovely bloom such a purrty color pink.

  9. I have a cactus the same as that which belonged to my mother in law. It had always been in her house from before I met Ivor so I know it is more than 45 years old. It flowers every year in mid to late November and stays in bloom until the New Year. This winter it was a bit earlier and barely made it to Christmas.

  10. That is an antique!! beautiful Boo xox

  17. What a pretty cactus bloom! You catch such vivid colors in your photos.

    We have a small outdoor garden and have had such a mild winter that the azaleas we can see on the cat TV are blooming already.
