Isn't this amazing? I truly believe that plants and flowers are a true gift. This Christmas cactus was given to me two years ago by a dear friend for my office. It was beautiful the first year so I tried to keep it going. It has been knocked around a bit, moved from one building to another, and the window light changed drastically. BUT here it is-still going strong. Absolutely amazing.

I think I need to try to use these flowers in a new embroidery design. Must ask Jeanne to sketch them-I think they could become adorable little umbrellas or hats. What do you think??

  2. Thanks Di-I am getting more excited about them every time I see the plant. Time to play around with some new ideas I think.
