Thanksgiving cactus flower

I know that usually these are all called Christmas cactus, but the points on the leaves mean it’s Schlumbergera truncata, or Thanksgiving cactus, and not Schlumbergera bridgesii. I am happy to report it is blooming the proper time, not that I do anything special to it. I have several different colors and they all seem to be liking the indoor weather this year.

Leaves in water

Autumn leaves floating in a plant saucer. We leave it out as a sort of birdbath for critters. In the spring it attracted a pair of mallard ducks!

Three succulents

The only name I know for sure is string of pearls for the middle one. Some kind of rosette with pink-gray leaves on the left, and the weirdest one, a cactus with long papery spines that are kind of like fingernails, but very pointy indeed, on the right. We’ll be getting sun in this window all winter.

Caffe D’arte in Seattle

A recent beautiful and sunny late-summer Seattle day. Coffee, sunshine, and hanging fuchsia flower baskets! What’s not to like?

Old-world feel to this lovely Seattle street scene. Window arches on both sides of the street!

Mt. Baker Beach

Was lucky enough to have a little picnic the other day at a new place to me, Mt. Baker Beach. Here’s the pier:

And here’s the little park where we had a picnic. Isn’t that inviting?

Seahurst sunset

Oh my goodness it was lovely the other evening. A quick visit to Seahurst Park in Burien, WA showed a perfect scene.

A year of memories

I have posted about this Memory Jar before, but here it is again. A wonderful idea for your 2019 New Year!

Starting January 1, write good things that happen to you on little pieces of paper.

• Surprise gifts
• Accomplished goals
• The beauty of nature
• “LOL” moments
• Memories worth saving
• Daily blessings

Then on Dec. 31, open the jar and read all the amazing things that happened to you this year.

Create a memory jar for the year. So fun to read at the end of the year!

Daytime Christmas tree

Our Christmas Eve day tree. I like how it looks in the daytime almost as much as the nighttime.
