It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like … Christmas Cactus

Just a few of this morning’s hints of Christmas here at Dra’Faven:

Kalamazoo has a dusting of white outside, but December’s steel gray, short days make little spots of light and color all the more enjoyable. I love the contrasts of this season: dark and light, cold and cozy, busy and still. How do you bring warmth and glow into a chilly world? In what ways do you allow yourself to shine regardless of the weather, news, or your surroundings? What small act feels like a celebration just for you, just for now?

  1. Beautiful, Laura. ‘Tis the season, and the evergreens, lights & beautiful rich greens, reds, etc. help uplift (and ground) energies and spirit. What a wonderful, healthy Christmas Cactus! I remember one from my maternal grandmother’s house – very fond memories. šŸ™‚ Season of Lights blessings to you and your beloveds!

  2. Thank you, Jamie! This Christmas Cactus was a cutting from the maternal grandmother’s cactus of a friend of mine from our Madison days, so it has history, too. šŸ™‚ Yes, I love the reds and greens (and hot pinks!) of the season, too. Blessings and joy to you and yours. ā¤

In my younger days I used to decorate the whole flat with fir-trees and red Colours but at my old age I lost the strength and that is why I do enjoy so much your Posts and Your Christmas-Decoration. Thank you Laura very much and all the BLESSINGS OF THE SEASON TO YOU TWO and all the Faeries and Animals of your Home !!!From Contramary/Contramimi
