Red Anthurium and scarlet Christmas cactus and a sunny east-facing window. I notice the last time this cactus bloomed was last April — just a bit out of season maybe? This time, they are blooming in season and I’m very glad to see them. They brighten the room and brighten my world. When I look at birds and flowers and squirrels and chipmunks, I can forget for a little while all the rest of the junk going on in the world.
