Good to Wow: Flower Edition, SOOC

Flowers. In March in Connecticut? I thought I was going to have to a) feel really stupid taking my camera into the grocery store, b) convince my husband to buy me some flowers (not to make it sound like he needs convincing; I always tell him NOT to buy me flowers because I hate spending money on them), or c) photograph a very tired plastic (maybe silk?) sunflower my youngest daughter has been playing with for a few months.

But apparently, my Christmas cactus is totally confused about the weather after the move from Georgia...because, lo and behold, it produced a beautiful, lone bloom this week.

Here's my SOOC:

That's a good shot - I've tried so many times to get good shots of these flowers. I think they look really elegant hanging like that.

Hmmm mine never has bloomed-ever. Perhaps if I watered it on a semi consistent basis it might??
Your photo is beautiful. I've been loving these posts you make. The colors are so neat- vibrant and alive. Neat, neat, neat!

I chose to go with carnations for mine today but my Christmas Cactus bloomed recently too. I think it thrives on neglect.
