Roseville gardener Candice Suter, author of "Sweetstuff's Sassy Succulents," remembers her mom with a special "Mother's Day" cactus:
"This 'Christmas cactus' was my mother's. I have fond memories of her living room full of giant pots of these beauties. All lovingly cared for and they grew huge and bloomed. She had a couple different colors and they were her pride and joy!
"My mom has been gone about nine years now. This year, the plant has new growth and (on) Mother's Day is in full bloom."
