just do it!

This is what a tiny voice inside my head said to me as I was staring at the poinsettias at the store last saturday. It was still september, remember? But they were so pretty and there were not many of them , I thought there won't be any left if I decide I want one and come back on monday... so I just did it : I got one! it's mine! I think it is a pretty plant and deserves a life not only around december. I just wonder whether it will look this pretty over Xmas too...

  2. I am so glad you did it! The plant is gorgeous and it looks beautiful on your porch. We have to break out of the box and be crazy...if I see one around here I just might get one too.lol

  3. what a beautiful poinsettia! that is about the only plant that might survive in our house. Others just wither and die under my supervision.
    Might look out for one as well to have through the winter!

  6. Such a pretty one, Mar...You know this is a Euphorrbia...I just love that THAT family of plants is so big that it encompasses your Pointsetta and about 35 species in my garden...It's the Milky White Substance that you see when you break off a leaf that makes it part of the Euphirbia Family!
    And I agree with you, why not have one or two, in September, too!

  12. I usually buy poinsettias in Nov. or Dec. and so far, have been able to keep them alive and thriving through the next summer. They get tall and lush and very green for me. For 2 years, I had a plant that started turning red again in Nov., even though I didn't do anything to make it bloom again. I hope you have good luck with yours, Mar.

  13. I had the same idea but with another plant only used around 1. November, the Chrisantheme (I don't know the word in english)it's to be put on graves that day to honor the dead. But I found this plant so beautiful, that I bought a big one for myself and put it in the living room.

  14. They are so beautiful, I'd love to see them in the wild :o) My grandmother could keep them going for ages ... mine always die about 2 minutes after Christmas.

  15. What a beauty! I don't know what kind of weather you have there but when I lived in Florida we could get them to grow all year long.

    I hope yours stays pretty a good long time...check with your local nursery for tips. or online too.

  16. Oh, it looks beautiful! I have no idea how long it is supposed to last - I can't imagine what my little guy would do to that poor plant..... anyway, keep posting photos of it and I'll live vicariously thru your plant ;).

  18. re: comment on vacation... The boat was a lot of fun. There was a guy up on the deck and as is the custome when boarding a boat I asked for permission to board...and he of course granted it. DD got to move the thing that moves the tiller.

    And while she did not loose any teeth on vacation (she was worried the toothfairy wouldn't know where to come) she has lost one since we've returned. I need to get after her about the other 3 though.

  20. Mar! Your site grew! It got .... uh-oh... FAT! LOL! It gives you a lot more space for ... whatever! Today poinsettias... who knows tomorrow! COOL! The plant is gorgeous! I don't know if it will still be that pretty come December. BUT... if it's not, surely they will be more plentiful then!
