Ever year, my Christmas cactus gives me just one precious flower. The plant is lovely and healthy, it puts on new growth slowly, as a cactus should. But for some reason, when it comes time to flower, it choses to give just one flower.
I think it’s funny that it doesn’t give up all together, but persists in sending out one bloom. One is enough to cheer my day, I always look forward to seeing that one bud turn into a magnificent flower. I’ll be content with my one precious flower.
(The flower is resting on a beach find – likely a small whale vertebrae.)
