The Original

There are currently 3 blooms on the Christmas Cactus given to me over 20 years ago by Mom.
She and I always joked that it was really a BIRTHDAY CACTUS because it normally bloomed twice a year on her birthday and mine.

Today would have been her 95th! She passed 6 years ago but the Cactus carries on the tradition!
Mom told me when she gave it to me that it was her mother's! That makes it VERY OLD!!
And one or another of my cacti has had blooms since October!!
How pretty! I love how the plant is tied into your family history too.

I love this terrific close up of it for all it symbolizes. I already wished her a happy birthday this morning on my run at exercise class!
