“Hope is not a resting place but a starting point – a cactus, not a cushion” ~ H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
I was astonished to find this otherworldly cactus flower blooming on my little windowsill cactus plant. I typically do not have the nurturing instinct necessary for encouraging houseplants to flourish, but I do have a lot of hope.
It was in the spirit of hope that I brought this little plant home, planted it in a pot, and promptly began my regimen of neglect. Apparently, cacti like to be left alone. They are the Greta Garbos of the plant world.
I envision the beginning of a beautiful relationship. The cactus prefers to be ignored, and I prefer to ignore my houseplants. Win-win!
