Color on a Dreary Day

It’s always nice to get a splash of color during dreary winter days.  

Just for fun I put some of my pieced hexagons on the design wall, in no particular order.  They are bright!

This amaryllis opened the first of four buds yesterday.  I found bulb kit this fall at a big box store.  It was half the price I had seen them in the past, so I couldn't resist it.

My Christmas cactus is also blooming.  I brought this one home last year and it immediately dropped all its buds.  I was afraid I might never see it in bloom.

Your blocks are cheery!!

The Christmas cactus almost always drop their buds the year you buy them. They don't like to be moved once they have started budding. Mine usually bloom a second time that first winter though.
