Xmas Cactus

This is the Cactus I got from Pat and Celie for Xmas, a tall columnar one with spines and white fur. Reminiscent of my old man of the Andes that i owned before.
I actually went to the allotment on friday to see how things were doing.
We picked some Leeks, Parsnips, and the Brussel Sprouts that had not gone over. Ooops left it a bit too long I think. I will know this year to check them more often.
The beds need digging over and extra organic matter dug in. A job for next week I think.
The amaryllis here has flowered, and the true Xmas Cactus too so i can photograph them when im off from work.
As one year ended and the new one began so I plan for the Spring.
The seed catalogues need looking at and new plans drawn up for the coming growing season.
