Today's picture/Cactus flowers

The usual Remembrance Day or Veterans Day or Armistice Day flower is the poppy, but on this November 11, these are the flowers in my house. For the very first time, all three plants are blossoming at once and on this day.


  1. Nan these are beautiful. Mine has not bloomed this fall like it usually does. May not like the spot in this new home.

  2. Mine are in the south and in the north. The different thing this year is we don't turn on the oil heat so the rooms they are in are quite cool. I wonder if they like the temp??

  3. Gorgeous. Do they need a lot of sunlight?

  4. My Christmas cactus always blooms just before Thanksgiving and has 2 blooms today!

    Thanks for your comment on my blog and the book recommendations. I'm off to go check them out.


Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
