A couple of my favorite things this time of year.
My mother's Christmas cactus. I inherited the cactus ("saved" would be a better word) following my mom's passing a couple of years ago. It was forgotten and parched. Each year it rewards me with its beauty and memories.
My Pink Perfection camellia. If Nature produces anything more beautiful, I don't know what it is.
And, last but not least, the wonderful feeling of kindness and compassion that fills the air at this time of year.
May you all be blessed.
