It's that time of year again
« on: December 11, 2018, 10:53:34 »
Poinsettia has arrived. It has already sat in a cold draught all morning as It is a nice clean cold day and the windows are open to blow through and freshen the house. I'll give it a fortnight.

Haven't had a poinsettia for decades.  Hate the things and all the rest of the euphorbia family too.  Nasty plants with nasty colours and nasty sap too.

It would not be xmas without the annual dying of the poinsettia. It marks the start of the new season as it dies the evenings get longer :sunny: and the compost heap gets bigger. There are those silly buggers who try and save it by putting it in a dark place, If you cannot see it what is the point of having it.
