Another Peek Featuring Schlumbergera

Everything was tucked into the greenhouse well before cold weather. What I didn't expect was that a chipmunk would move in as well. He managed to uproot several Christmas/Thanksgiving Cacti and a nice Burro Tail Sedum that was in a 3" pot. Mr. Chipmunk is no longer a guest in my greenhouse.

 Only two colors of Cacti have bloomed so far. Others are starting to show a little color in the buds. I noticed that the big box store thinks highly of their Holiday Cactuses too and they're only barely in bud.

 I can't see over into the Rabbit's Foot Fern so I held the camera up so I could see the 'feet.'

 Some bromeliad bracts just hold on forever.

 I've renovated some Burro Tail Sedum since squirrels played in them during the summer. Mistletoe Cactus had a better vacation outdoors and are plentiful.

I spent time today coaxing tomato vines away from the greenhouse walls so they don't freeze tomorrow night. It's a jungle of Lycopersicon esculentum  in there.

The only plants still outside are potted Agapanthus that need to come on inside so we'll have early blooms. Maybe.

I need to tell you that upgrading to Windows 10 has caused havoc. I can no longer comment on blogs where I used to. I tried several different ways. If the program takes my comment at all, it disappears into the ether.

Oh, how annoying about the Windows upgrade. And the cheeky chipmunk.

Sorry about your unwanted guest and the windows craziness. Why can't they just leave well enough alone in computerland? Your Thanksgiving/Christmas cacti are looking beautiful!
