My Thanksgiving Cactus Named Marjorie
My Thanksgiving Cactus bloomed right on time as usual this year. She opened her lovely pink and white blossoms on Thanksgiving Day. I have had this plant for about 18 years and it was a rescue from a home that I had listed so I have no idea how old it really is: it’s kind of an ugly plant because it grew every which way but when it blooms-it is gorgeous.
Why did we name her Marjorie? Marjorie was Craig’s Mom and her birthday was November 25. So most years, her birthday was either on Thanksgiving or right next to it: she always said her birthday was eclipsed by the holiday and no-one remembered it.
We told her that this cactus was for her and would always bloom on her birthday. Marjorie passed away last December, but we still have our Marjorie Thanksgiving Cactus, and she bloomed right on time to celebrate Mom’s birthday.
Happy Birthday, Marjorie.
