One last flower, and a Skywatch for Friday

Well, at work, my Christmas Cactus continued to open up and charm everyone.


By the end of the week my original bloom was beginning to find neighbors!

What fun!

On the Skywatching front: here is a lovely sunset that I caught last week. You see, I always wished that I were artistic enough to paint or draw, but now I realize that photographing nature is much more fun. There's no way I could dream this stuff up!


Kind of wispy, kind of dramatic. I like it!

Feel free to click on any of the photos to get a closer look. And do check out more sky-oriented photos from around the world at this week's Skywatch Friday. Have a great weekend, everyone!

The flowers are so pretty! The sunset is gorgeous--where do you find the time to drop what you're doing and take pictures?

Your Christmas Cactus is delightful! Mine has stopped blooming. And the sunset is breathtaking! What a lovely way to end your day! Such soft colors! Hope you have a great weekend, Toby!

Bubby - I don't! I just keep my camera in my bag :)
Sylvia - I'm always honored when you comment here! I think my cactus is a little confused, being indoors - last year it bloomed in February! But I love it anyway - enjoy your weekend, too!

That is a beautiful sunset! I feel the same way ... I couldn't draw a straight line with a ruler to save my life, but occasionally I'm in the right place at the right time with a camera in hand.
