    I have no clue what I did or didn't do to my Christmas cactus. It did bloom between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    It is also blooming now and blooming better than it did then!

    My dad's Christmas Cactus is doing the same thing! He keeps it in his kitchen window and it's HUGE with flowers all over it!

    I dug up some of my herbs last fall and kept them inside over the winter. They don't know what the heck is going on either!! [​IMG]

    I bring in rosemary, thyme, parsley and basil every year and it lasts all winter in my kitchen window. I have done that for the last three years.

    I put my rosemary out last summer and left it. It is like small shrubs now. I cut and dried tons of it over the fall. I am not sure my thyme will come back this spring. Stupid dogs!!
