Flowers = Spring!

Two weeks ago, while doing groceries, I spotted this little plant, a Spring Cactus, with little red tips. I brought it home and put it next to my chair. It was growing, but yesterday morning was suprised to see the flowers! Yay! Spring is here! At least in our house!

Ain't it purdy? I just love flowers and colourful ones are the best. I took the camera out and snapped a few shots, this was the best one.

While the camera was out, I figured I would take one of our kitty, Tobi, the old boy...

Between a blooming cactus and my beautiful cat, what can I say, life is good!

Wow! Your cat is beautiful! Love the flowers too! I'll be very happy when the trees stop blooming!

Glad life is good!

I don't think I've seen a cactus like that. I have a Christmas cactus with the same kind of leaves, but the flowers are different. Yours is very pretty, and it's got a ton of buds on it. Tobi's no slouch either.

Aw, your Tobi looks much like my Toby who is now happy in Calgary! :-)

Lovely blog! Very funny. I have put a link on my blog so all my friends can enjoy it too!

He is such a cutie. I babbled at him when I saw him (something along the lines of "Oh, you are so cute, aren't you?).

Plus, that plant is absolutely gorgeous. I am convinced that God is playing an elaborate April Fool's Day joke on me because it is snowing. Again. Grr.

I have Christmas cactuses, but I've never had a spring one. Purty!

Bonjour, Your Stinkiness. Sorry to have been so lax in my commentary. Tobi looks very smug and comfy...two of the best signs of a happy cat. ;-)

The cactus reminds me that in public it is perfectly acceptable to prick your finger, just don't do it the other way around.

Traceyt: Thank you!

flurrious: Thank you! I had seen the Christmas cactus before, but not the Spring one. Lots of buds & some are still coming out. It's been 3 days now and the flowers are still going strong.

tNb: The Happy Canadian cats!

Iberian Bird: Well thank you and welcome to my world. Hope to see you around again.

greenduckies: Thank you, he is a cutie! And you could very well be right about April's Fool!

lizgwiz: Thanks!

Marius: Welcome back! And I see you haven't lost your sense of humour! ;-)
