My Christmas Cactus is a Valentine Cactus!

Here is my little "Christmas Cactus"...all ready for the current holiday!!!  Yes, it is gonna be gorgeous just in time for sweethearts day!  Yippie!
 One little branch sticking out so sweetly!
We took a day trip today and wound up at a beautiful park in Broward County where pony rides were offered for 3 dollars!  My sweet granddaughter, Emily was happy to go!  Here she is with her Mom guiding her!
Then on the way back home, we all wanted ice cream.  We ended up at a Kilwin's in downtown Lake Worth right next to a Kava bar where this great little 3 piece group played.  My DIL's father is friends with the bass player, so we stopped to allow Donovan, my grandson who plays the bass in school, to see them. They were really great and it was a ton of fun!  We did NOT DRINK KAVA!!!  One of the guys was on flute, and I was excited because that was my instrument in school.
 Here is a quick pic I snapped of my pink tipped's a pretty one, again looking quite lovely for Valentines Day!
Hope everyone is well, staying warm (those of you in non-tropical zones)...
xoxo- Julie

Not too cold here today. Better than it has been. Still snow covered tho. Fun seeing how it is in tropical US.

Wow, a Valentine's cactus...that's a new one for me! Mine don't always bloom at Christmas, but they have never been this late (or early?). Looks like you had a lovely outing with the grandkids. Enjoy your week.

Happy Monday! Hope you had a nice weekend and enjoying some good weather. Thank you for your comment. I was surprised at how nice the cards came out. I'm in the process of making some cards for "Operations Write Home" for Mother's Day.
Have a great day my Friend.
