MAR 13 : 72/365


By plucking her petals, you do not gather the beauty of a flower.

– Rabindranath Tagore

My Christmas cactus blooms twice a year… neither of which is at Christmastime.  Instead, she chooses to bloom in the spring and fall, and that is just fine with me.  I get to enjoy her beauty twice a year this way.

The annual spring bloom is just about over, and as I was deadheading the old flowers this morning I was taken aback by their beauty.  Even when dried and shriveled up, the vibrant hue is a sight to behold.  A quick iPhone photo and edit in Photoshop was all it took to preserve this cactus’ beauty until she decides to bloom again come October.
