Once the Holidays are over I always save the Poinsettias and pot them up on my deck, or put them out in my back yard. This is one of the perks of living in SoFla. I think I might have about 8 growing into bushes out back and three have the leaves turning red.
This pot has two plants that were really small last Christmas and I felt bad for them and put into a large plastic pot. I can never toss them as so many millions of people do. Their treated like disposable plants and that does not sit right with me..
This past few months I've been getting my list together and have done some crochet for a few people, not getting the Holiday feeling until this past week, when I saw the Poinsettias starting to bloom.
It's pretty amazing to watch.. there is not a flower bud of sorts, the actual leaves start to turn yellow then red.
Guess it's time to get serious about the Holidays.. the Poinsettias say, "There on the way!"
Let me share one of my Crochet creations..
"Fingerless Gloves and Beret"
(I'm not saying who they are for)
Time to get your gifts made and to get the lists made then ready set go.... Shopping!
"Yes, the Poinsettias are talking"
