    Funny you should post this..I have 2 Christmas cactus..neglected for ever. Yesterday I went by them..amazement..there are buds which will be flowers on both of them!! Think life is like that..forget something in deep recess of mond, and something triggers a thought..which in turn blooms into a memory or live event bringing joy. Am eagerly awaiting those flowers!!
