A Colorful January!

Forget January whites! I'm all for color! I don't force my cactus to bloom in December but instead let it stay on its own cycle and then enjoy the plethora of color in January when all is bleak, white, and gloomy. I have this usually right by my kitchen sink...which is a corner sink below two windows. My cactus loves it there, and I love the anticipation of watching those little pink buds pop out then grow into these beautiful blooms. Bring on the color...and so long bleak January!
