12 December: In the kitchen

Last week, Lucy over at Box Elder had some interesting photos of her cutlery and washing up, so here's some of mine -

Breakfast for the two of us, plus the mugs from the previous evening's drink.

And on the window-sill are two small Christmas cactuses (cacti?), the scraps from a huge old one that was discarded last year. It never flowered until Easter, anyway.

But the offcuts are doing what they are supposed to do, and plump pink buds are developing -

They should be proper flowers for Christmas.

Mugs - yes.
But you didn't say what the glass was for .... Surely it wasn't a bedtime whisky.

Not these days.
My breakfast glass of fruit juice - one of my 5-a-day. Won't Nanny in the government be pleased?

Bravo on the washing-up, a most elegant and orderly arrangement!
OUr Christmas cactus flowered early in the autumn I think, they don't seem to be very aware of what they're supposed to do.

Anything that flowers at this time of year is a great joy isn't it? I think these cactus flowers are fascinating.
