I have mixed emotions about the Christmas season.
I love soft white lights that sparkle in the darkness, gathering around the fireplace with a warm drink in hand, music and scents that are specific to the season, and feeling the sense of joy and sharing that's in the air.
I don't love the hectic pace, shopping in crowded malls, and commercialized decorations. Oh, and I don't like Christmas red.
So, when buying my first ever Christmas cactus this year I chose one salmon and one white. My goal is to keep them alive until December 25th and use them as a centerpiece for the table. The white cactus hasn't bloomed just yet but, as you can see, the salmon one is going to town.
