Christmas Cactus blooms on Thanksgiving

IMG_4683

Drue said she has a friend who has a Christmas cactus blooming as well.  If I pick all the blooms off after it is finished, it will bloom again—at least mine did last year.

Aren’t they beautiful?  Especially on these cold days.

2013 Thanksgiving Day

It doesn’t happen as often as I would like, so having all the family home and here for Thanksgiving is such a treat for me.

But before they came here for dinner, Kim, Marc and family hosted the 2013 Thanksgiving Turkey Trot and Plunge.

Here is everyone ready to take off for a trot.  It was about 8:15 am so not real warm.

They weren’t gone long, maybe a mile or so.  Dan and I made sure the fire didn’t go out…..

This is the crazy part.  When they got back they all jumped in the lake!

More about Thanksgiving tomorrow.

Happy Thanksgiving!

The picture tradition continues….

Even after all these years, this picture still makes me laugh.

Moving for Monarchs

Last summer  New York City dancer, Gwynedd Vetter-Drusch,  visited our pasture.  I wrote about it here.

Here is the first part of her project.  Watch closely for the field of milkweed—around 1:54 in the video.  That is in our pasture. 

This is only the introduction.  They are trying to raise funds to continue the project.  I invite you to follow this link to read more about how to help.  And, if you scroll down far enough, you will see Dan and my name in the credits.
