A few days ago we took care of our neighbors
plants...watering each morning. I took this photo
and emailed it to her to show her how nicely
the lilies were blooming.
It's so nice to have next door neighbors
who give and take....I've missed that.

Russell's Great Grandmother's Orchid Cactus

When we moved up to Vancouver WA
late last year we didn't have enough room
for our two huge Orchid Cactus in our house.
So they hung out in the dark cold garage.
We watered them and then fertilized them
right before we brought them out in April.
Amazingly once we brought them out 
one of the cactus put out a prodigious amount
of flower buds. Look at this gorgeous plant!
We inherited these two plants as no one else
wanted them. They do take up a lot of space.
But they are so beautiful and the flowers smell divine!
Once it becomes too cold this fall,
into the garage they will go.
Have a lovely Wednesday.
