My holiday cactus thinks its holiday time already and began to blossom.  I was going to throw it out and went to the sunroom to do that and discovered all these buds, so I brought it in where it was warm and this is what I got.   This was my Mom’s plant and I started a new one from it which is not blossoming.



Our Japanese Maple out front is brilliant this year.  It is also the last tree on the street to lose its leaves.  I have so enjoyed looking out the kitchen window at it.  The colors of the trees around us also are quite nice this year.   What was supposed to be the peak weekend turned out to be these last two weeks instead.
