love them!!!! They're so scruffy!!!
he is gorgeous! as is your home! I love the trees!
ETA: i love that Christmas Cactus - any idea how old it is? We have one that is 65 years old and not that big so I'm guessing it's closing in on 75 or 80 years.
Bennie's actually a she, short for Beignet. We wanted a food-related name, and her coloring is spot-on next to Cafe du Monde's beignets.
The Christmas Cactus is a cutting from an original plant from Greg's grandmother, I'm guessing about 45 years ago. It must like that spot, because it just keeps growing. Every couple of years, we transplant it to a bigger container.
