This is not the Christmas cactus like the one my mother used to put by my bed in winter so it didn't freeze, as if I could breathe on it to keep it alive. That one had magenta blossoms and smoother leaf segments. I'm happy to have Christmas begonias, too.
The dog and I planted daffodils yesterday: 100 mixed daffodils along where I planted a white crape myrtle that will be leafless when the daffodils bloom.
25 Tahiti daffodils went in where the big stump fell down last summer. A nearby bed already has these double beauties. By the time we got to the 25 Ice Follies, I dug two big holes and one smaller. Ten, 10, 5 bulbs went in the shallow holes. As I was covering them with compost to give the proper depth and a little height to the bed, Buffy sat on one group of ten waiting to be covered.

It seemed like a lot of bulbs when I was digging. In the spring I'll wish it had been 1500.
