Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life. ― Mark Twain

I do miss my Christmas Cactus, but it died in the move. I'd had it for nearly twelve years!!  

Hope all of you have a great weekend and wishing you a very Merry Christmas!! Enjoy!!

Perhaps you should ask Father Christmas for a new one...

Very pretty shadows - hopefully you're enjoying a sunny weekend. I also love your beach photo below, it's gorgeous. I could never keep cacti alive, but luckily I can see them whenever I hike these days. I'm sure we'll "talk" again before then but Merry Christmas, Sylvia!

Oh I love the zygocactus; I had one called 'Mary' which is now in the care of my good friend in Sydney; 'Mary' is now 24 years old!!!

Lovely shadow shot and the coloured glass enhances it. Have a super holiday weekend Sylvia - stay warm!! YAM xx

I love your shadowy Christmas cactus. 12 years is a long time, I tend to kill them within a few months.

Be well n be happy, Sylvia :)

A splendid photo of your cactus in Christmas glory. Love the colourful glass framing it.

Happiest Christmas to you Sylvia.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you Sylvia. Thank you for your posts all year and for your comments and for helping to host the memes. Those are year-round gifts that I really appreciate.

Funny how a plant can become a friend - sort of. Funny, too, how things seem to go missing or die when involved in a move. I don't get it.

Lovely shadows, nevertheless.

BTW, that beard and moustache does not do you justice. But I'd guess you'd be the best Santa around!

Happy Holidays!

So glad your picture survived even if the plant didn't. It's so lovely! Merry Christmas, Sylvia!

Angie said...

Best wishes to you, Sylvia. Thank you.

Kay said...

I'm so sorry about your Christmas cactus, Sylvia. Ours isn't blooming very well this year. Hmmm... Or maybe it's just late. I don't know.

MyMaracas said...

Oh no! I loved that cactus too - mine never, ever looked that good. Maybe Santa will bring you a new one.

Merry Christmas!

OOPS...I was so busy finishing up making my presents that I almost missed this one with the wine glass shadow. You know how I love the ones you post. The cactus is yummy, too. genie

I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
