    You know the furnace heat felt very comfortable this chilly Tuesday morning with the temperatures in the upper 30s in some areas. Not quite that cold here, but rather chilly. Will need to bring my Christmas Cactus plants in soon. The instructions are to leave them outside until the temperatures get down into the 40s. We then hang them in the garage, attached to the house. In a short time, they start to bud then we bring them inside for the most beautiful bouquet of blossoms ever.
