A Few Years Ago

Well another Birthday has passed and I was sent a Beautiful Christmas Cacti ..My dearest friend from  
Outer London , she sends me a gorgeous Plant or Flowers every year. Two  weeks ago and is now just beginning to open her buds. 
I think it's the best thing ever to receive a lovely colourful plant, especially this time of year. 

Well where has the YEAR gone, has it gone by too quickly for you also. 
A lot of things have happened this Year which in turn hasn't been a good one .
For me I lost my darling Greyhound (Brindle) , and the Summer seemed to fade into insignificance.

I came across the above Header and there he was his little paw prints in the Snow. 
Our little walks around the Garden , indeed left its mark , it made me smile today.

It's a cold and damp Day here today , but the rain at least has held off.
Looks to be more rain heading our way though.
Enjoy your Week .


  1. What a beautiful plant. The colors are gorgeous!

  2. Happy belated birthday! Your plant is so pretty. What a lovely gift.

    I love your header. It's a great tribute to Brindle. Sorry for your loss. It's so hard to lose pets as they become members of the family.

  3. Wonderful Christmas Cactus, yes the time seems to go by so fast these days. Have a wonderful day.

  4. Happy belated Birthday Sheila. Your Christmas Cactus is so Beautiful, and yes it is so nice to have plants in bloom this time of the year. Love you header. We still don't have any snow and like you it is cool, damp and raining off and on.
    Well my dear in case I don't get back this way for a bit. I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year filled with good health, and all the things you love.
    Hugs, across the pond.
    Dianne :)

  5. Gorgeous blooms -- I have 3 of these plants, but they all have the trumpet blooms.

  6. Lovely cactus Sheila, but even more lovely - the footprints of you and your darling Wile-e, what a beautiful memory, walking together.
    Sorry I missed your birthday, hope it was a good one.

    1. Thank you everyone for your comments much appreciated ..
      Yes Arlene it is wonderful so pleased I found this one.

  7. I love those cacti too, unfortunately the really old ones I had died a couple years ago and I haven't replaced them...

  8. I missed your birthday too, so apologies for that - I hope you had a good one :) The header photo is simply beautiful, he will always be with you walking alongside, just so nice to have a photo :) Your Christmas cacti is beautiful, mine is in flower too, but it is on the windowsill behind the Christmas tree so it can only really be seen from outside lol.
