Haiku Sticky #288

I've had a spindly Christmas cactus for at least five years that has never seen a new pot, or new soil, and only gets watered when it practically screams at me from a nearby shelf. Yet, it always perks up after watering, and once or twice each year I am humiliated by a smattering of brilliant pink flowers. What did I do to deserve such forgiveness?

  1. I wish you'd come work your magic on my Christmas cactus. It didn't bloom this year. I'm still hoping for a late gift.

  2. How lovely, enjoy your delightful surprise, thanks for sharing in haiku

    Much love...
