These beauties are homegrown.
Last year Elizabeth told me to pot my poinsettia and put it in one place and leave it. Lo' and behold, it became a flowering poinsettia. The little red leaves became flowers in a surprise appearance in December. The rest of the year, it was just green foliage.
I'm thrilled. I've seen those planted in the ground and they get tall and leggy and not so easy to see in the Christmas transformation.
I'm delighted.
And I have a couple of new ones to pot for next year.
Ah, the garden.
