We took a trip up to Fernandina Beach to see youngest son's family
for an early Christmas with them.
Ella had just had her tonsils out this week so she was a bit droopy
but a real trooper about the pain.
Eli loved having us to himself for a change!
We played all kinds of three year old games!
And here is a plant trophy from me-I have been tending this cactus for 10 years;
it was a gift from a friend starting out at 8' and now it is 28" and for the first time ever-
it is blooming!
They are waxy thick flowers and there are buds all over the plant!
I am so excited!
This is a Euphorbia cactus of which there are tons of varieties, a crown of thorns is a more common one. It is cold hardy which is a good thing because we woke up to temperatures in the 30's!
Hope Ella is feeling better soon. Merry Christmas to you and your family!ReplyDelete
Merry Christmas! We are a big euphorbia family here in Oregon!ReplyDelete
What a nice day! Love that cactus!ReplyDelete
You have a beautiful family. Merry Christmas!ReplyDelete
have a great time and happy christmas to everybody! and I've been told that eating loads of ice cream is supposed to help with the pain after having the tonsils removed - if that isn't a good excuse to eat loads:)ReplyDelete
Poor Ella. I hope she had a lot of ice cream to help with the pain. I had mine out when I was 4, and I still remember how much my throat hurt.ReplyDelete
