For years, I have been admiring my friend’s Christmas Cactus, which breaks out in bright red blooms every November. Last Christmas, she gave me a cactus that was full of pink blooms. We both wondered if it would ever bloom again. A couple of weeks ago, I notice buds on the leave. This is what the blooms look like when they have opened.
Six years ago, Rion was born in the foster care program of Pikes Peak Humane Society.

However, within a day or so, he decided that Rion Rules! an attitude he has never lost.
