Well, it seems that October is a little confused. Last week - tomatoes, this week - Christmas cactus. They call it a Christmas Cactus for a reason. It blooms in December. I guess mine is a little eager to get the holiday season started. This Cactus is in my office at work. I have one at home that hasn't started yet, and doesn't look like it will bloom anytime soon. It really is beautiful, don't you think.
