Epi, Gift & Charlemagne

I have posted about this Epi (Orchid Cactus) before, but I just have to show you how lovely it was in full bloom this year.
Here's a close-up of the blossoms. Red isn't my favorite color but I sure like it in these flowers!
The blossoms are large but I learned that there are some varieties with even larger blossoms. I Have a new yellow one called 'Humdinger.' It hasn't bloomed yet but when it does it will be interesting to see just how large the blossoms are.
I love Epi's and have managed to collect nine different ones.
Here is a lovely bag that Shelly made. She does very professional work. She had a little contest and drew my name. I love all the posies which fit my name of 'Posypockets.'

Oh yes, may I introduce you to my 32nd great grandpappy.
Charlemagne, King of the Franks and Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire.
Yes, I am still working on my genealogy files. It's fascinating what we can learn about these people. Very good records were kept on the royal lines.
Charlemagne has countless descendants, you may be one yourself.
Ok, enough for now.
Blessings everyone, and remember,
"A diamond is a piece of coal that stuck to it's job!"
