Merry Christmas - Houseplant Edition

The F1 was complaining yesterday morning about the semi-melt had left the snow looking old and dingy, but in the spirit of the holiday the weather obliged her and a Christmas eve snowfall of 5 inches has freshly coated everything in a fluffy whiteness, but without any wind or too much snow travel isn't too difficult. A number of houseplants have flowered for Christmas: an orange-red gesner, the queen's tears bromeliad, a gold-flowered epiphytic cactus, and in particular a nice azalea that is so reliable that it gets its own decorations adding to the cheerfulness. Merry Christmas everyone!
