I thought I’d share this beautiful picture of a Christmas cactus bloom. I actually have one of these, but it hasn’t bloomed this year yet. It’s so exciting because they bloom in the winter around Christmas–hence the name “Christmas Cactus.” Here’s what they look like when in bloom.

I’m going to totally cheat today and share a picture of one of our maple trees. It’s not a flower, but maples have to be my favorite trees in the fall and they actually remind me of flowers as they first begin to turn.

I missed Flower Friday last week and didn’t realize it until the weekend. I’m back this week with a special picture of a zinnia we grew together from seed. My 7-year-old daughter took this picture with her tablet. I was quite amazed by it. It reminds me that kids can do some pretty constructive things with their tablets.
