Advent: Hope

Christmas cactuses bloom this time of year, but not every year. Like many plants, they bloom best under stress: not enough light, not enough water. From these stressors come beautiful flowers as the cactus strives to ensure the continuance of its line. Things look bad, but Advent is a reminder that hope, like beauty, endures.
