On the Other Hand

The other day a strange thing happened in my kitchen --- at my garden window. A Christmas cactus bloomed, all pink and beautiful.

She didn't know it was January 31st. She couldn't see my 7MSN calendar across the room above my kitchen desk. She just knew she was velvety and a scrumptious color...and wanted to share. And I appreciate that.

Could Spring be on it's way to western Washington? Day lilies are sending up shoots. Buds are swelling on the trees. I heard frogs ribbeting across the road on January 16th --- a full 15 days earlier than normal. Today I heard Seattle had it's warmest January on record, ever.

I guess the answer is out the window. That's green grass folks. Despite the confused Christmas cactus, I think I'll place my bet on grass color as a better indicator of seasons.

Unless it's covered with snow. (Please, please no.)

Lovely Christmas Cactus color -- but they are so difficult to photograph. My cameras all have fits when I try to macro in on a bloom. My CCs bloom twice a year -- around Thanksgiving and then again now to March.

I'm likeing those heart shaped Corgi flowers in picture...

I've got blooms and buds as well. It does make me a tad nervous, but I will take what I can get and hope the Spring is truly around the corner. The horse is still holding her winter "fur", so we are not quite there as of yet.
