Cactus Surprise

My bedroom window has become a bit of a jungle - a state I am quite happy about - and yesterday as I was watering and picking out some yellowing leaves I discovered a pleasant surprise hidden close to the window pane: my white-flowered Christmas cactus (Schlumbergera truncata) had produced an unseasonal flower, without me even noticing the bud as it was developing.


These little unexpected discoveries are among my favorite gardening moments.

  2. I completely agree with you about those....moments, and I love the photograph. The white in the flower is perfect.
