Nothing warms my heart more, than to see a plant that was given to me as a gift return year after year.

Trish, My choice of a gift is always a plant...lol, unless it's diamonds ;)

OMG!! I love your Grandmothers Christmas Cactus Loretta! I've been told they can be handed down from Mother to daughter for years.

I received my mother's christmas cactus when she died, and it had been handed down from generations, and was absolutely huge. Unfortunately, it was half dead when I got it . Lack of care, I could not revive it. I think yours is beautiful Loretta. I wish I could have revived my mothers.

Love your globba's too

Donna's Monster White Brug that DonnaB shared with me when she invited me to her beautiful garden a few years ago! (And I had to cut a chunk out of the side of it when I discovered some scale right before I took the pic).

Sorry for my late post. Haven't been working with plants, or getting on any plant sites for months.

What a beautiful brug! I've always loved the look of Donna's Monster Brug. Heavy bloomer!
