Minor victories


I've somehow managed to get the African Violet to bloom again! 


And I took cuttings a couple months ago and magically made a healthy new African Violet


And while I was away for Thanksgiving, this happened! 

I'm not sure when I grew a green thumb with houseplants, but I'm feeling quite accomplished. Or maybe just lucky.

How lovely! My Christmas cactus is blooming too. LOVE it! African Violets . . . I'm not good enough about feeding them for them to bloom. I can keep them healthy but that's about it.

I've had violets for years, and though they lived, they never thrived like they are now thriving. The secret? Get it in a clay pot made for violets that sits down into a pot of water. Wow. AMAZING the difference it makes when you don't water them from the top!
