Christmas — on St. Patty’s day?

March 17, 2011 Leave a comment

For years, Romola has been nurturing and caring for a Christmas cactus.  It’s called a Christmas cactus since it only blooms once a year, usually right at Christmas.  However, Romola’s plant isn’t following instructions.  Every year it blooms later.  Now, it’s blooming on St. Patty’s day.  Good thing for the Irish, I guess.

Maybe life in a motor home, with its constant crossing of time zones, is not compatible with this plant.

Proudly sitting on the dash.
