I have to admit I was never a fan of the Poinsettia. I tend to garden in pastels and the Poinsettia is so bright and doesn’t even redeem itself with a good scent like my red rose Don Juan. Recently my eldest son was shopping at Home Depot and he noticed that all the women were ” going crazy” and filling their baskets with them. He thought it must be something special so he brought home four of them to me. He had no idea of my low opinion of them. I mean how can anyone not like a flowering plant right? I am going to transplant it in the garden so I can always remember his thoughtfulness. Lola appreciates how they compliment her red scarf.
