ALL BUDS YESTERDAY, FLOWER TODAY – Marilyn Armstrong

From Bud to Flower -FOTD – 11/28/2018


So as I follow the progression of my Christmas Cactus, it was full of buds yesterday and blossomed today. Just one blossom, but there are many more buds and a few of them are nice and fat.

I love watching flowers develop. Right now, I’m trying to decide whether it’s time to water it or not. It still feels a little bit damp, so I’m waiting. Maybe tomorrow.

Because it has been so gray, it is taking a really long for everything to dry up.

No processing. It looked so impressionistic without any assistance. A little more light would be nice! I hear we may get some day after tomorrow. Maybe.

Yesterday’s buds are tomorrow’s flowers.

It’s interesting to see which color comes up in the blooming. Some years, the color is very close to orange.

Soft bloom

And one in focus!

This year, the blossoms are deep red. As yet, the second plant has no buds so it could bloom as anything from light pink to dark red.
