Mother Nature knows what time of year it is!
It just may be the only thing man has no control of, the weather.
She knows when to change the vegetation into it's growing form.
I took a walk this morning in my yard and was so surprised to see my three Poinsettia plants from last Christmas starting to change color.
I planted three potted Poinsettia plants in different parts of the yard. Then forgot about them because most years along with millions of people, they usually just dried up and were tossed.
While walking around I spotted the red color and then the light bulb went off... wow, it's those plants I put there!
Plant #2 did not start to turn yet? But I do see a tiny red in the center of one set of leaves.
I'm surprised these plants did not grow much in the past 10 months?
Plant # 3 is turning and is 3 times the original size.
My neighbor has a Poinsettia plant that has been in her yard for the past 6 years and is as tall as my shoulders. Each year it blooms in the most beautiful red color and I'll have to get a photo of it once it starts to turn. I am amazed at how easy they grow in the yards here in SoCentral, Florida
Although Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away we can be sure the greenhouses all over the world are knee deep in Poinsettias to be bought for the Holiday season. I plan on getting three more this year and plant them also. No need to decorate the yard during the Christmas Holidays!
