I should call this ‘In a Cachepot on Monday’. This is one of my favorite containers, an antique Portmerion cachepot with Lilies in a deep burgundy russet color. I bought the cachepot on one of my many ‘junk store’ missions with my mother. It is sitting on my parent’s favorite marble table with a fish tile from another mission.
My husband’s father was a great collector of Christmas Cactus. When he passed on I inherited most of the collection. It took me awhile to figure out how to take care of them so this is the last survivor. I always feel like when this one blooms, it is Glenn giving me a wink and a smile from the great beyond.
Joining the Christmas Cactus are a bit of Blue Tropical Plumbago (P. auriculata) and some Sweet Begonia (B. alba) I have no idea what type of Christmas Cactus I have.
Hopefully it blooms a little longer.
