White Christmas

The azalea, the Thanksgiving cactus (called the November cactus here) and the orchid are all flowering at the same time this Christmas.

Together, they are quite a sight with all those white flowers in the window.

They are thriving so much, that they keep messing up the blinds… πŸ™‚

That’s the only white Christmas we are having here for now – the indoor flowery type.

It’s been unusually mild and raining again, not a trace of snow or ice. 😦

It looks like America is continuing its unreasonable winter policy and its grip on our white Christmas, because we haven’t seen any of it here for a long time.

If you haven’t heard of the winter theft, see this post:


Despicable. πŸ˜‰

    We call it Xmas cactus and mine is blooming whenever it likes too: November, Easter, Midsummer …

      We also have the Christmas cactus and it’s very similar looking to this one, so many people mix them up. The November cactus has those sharp “teeth” on their leaves, while the X-mas one has smooth, rounded leaves, at least here.
      Mine also flower whenever they want. πŸ™‚
