Sorry Howard, no bugs...;-)
But, this Christmas Cactus finally treated my wife and I with a bloom at the breakfast table.
It was a little bit late, but at least it finally arrived. My wife told me they are supposed to bloom around Christmas time, thus the name. She said she had been neglecting this one and had not been adequately watering it. When she finally gave it a little water it decided to bloom, and we were both delighted enough for me to pull out my camera. A somewhat rare event for me lately.
I hope everyone is well on this side of things. I seem to be preoccupied with coding these days.

Sized for TN and just a very slight bit of lightning shadows.
