At the holidays, I like to give and receive flowering houseplants.

So here's a seasonal-care guide that will keep those gift plants looking their best year-round.
Persuading your Christmas Cactus to pump out the lush and delicately colored flowers that originally tempted you to bring them home takes a little special attention. However, with just a modicum of care, they will reward you with an abundance of color that few winter bloomers can match.
Even in cold climates about a third of the bluebirds don't migrate to warmer climes in winter. These birds will visit feeders with the right enticement and you will both benefit.
