The earth laughs in flowers...


My Christmas cactus is blooming! This beautiful plant was a holiday gift from a student family. The flowers are my favorite color, PINK. How did they know?

If I were a rich woman, I would have fresh flowers in every room of my house all year long. Since I'm not, I am delighted to have this delicate pink blossom to enjoy, right here in the dead of winter. And there are a lot more where that one came from!

"People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us."
