I love things that grow and gardening. Winter is a slow time for gardening but you couldn’t tell by looking at my back porch which is enclosed. I wonderful husband built me some shelving a few years back to accomodate my Thanksgiving and Christmas cactus assortment. The upper shelving holds about twenty beauties and the lower shelves hold our veterinary supplies for the cattle and other gardening supplies. I want to show you the beauties on the upper shelving that started blooming Halloween week and are still blooming today. Enjoy!!
A lot of them look alike but each one has a subtle difference. I’m looking for a orange and my daughter bought me three yellow cactus for Thanksgiving. They need little care and are only watered about once a month. Watering anymore than that will cause them to rot right before your eyes. The porch is very cool now but it hasn’t stopped these beauties from strutting their stuff. I used to have to carry all of them upstairs in the wintertime but right before the shelving was done, hubby pulled up the flooring, replaced plumbing, flooring, insulation, put in new windows and insulated the walls and put up paneling. It stays cool in the summer because of the maple trees surrounding the house and in the winter the sun (when it shines) keeps the plants happy and the room warm.
If you want a beautiful plant with little care, this is the way to go!!
