When I sprained my ankle a few weeks ago Balazs and I were totally overwhelmed by how sweet our friends were. They called hundreds of times to ask if I'm ok, they brought food and even helped Balazs with all the Easter preparations. Anyway, my friend Paul who is a florist came over the day after my stumble and brought me a cactus. Yup, we started to giggle since you don't really see people gifting cacti to each other. But then he explained that cactus symbolizes endurance and it's the perfect gift to someone that is going through a hard time, whether it's emotional or physical. Ever since that day, I have a new fund love for cacti and now I'm thinking about creating a big planter full of those cool rascals.
Do you have cactus plants at home? Would you like to? Aren't those beautiful? xo
P.S: Plus, this nifty little trick.
P.P.S: Remember those?
