Sometimes, A Brown Thumb

I’m new with poinsettias.  Like I was with daylilies and garlic 5 years ago. And, so, I’m down one from last week. Another is in ICU with my begonias.  They don’t like cold. That’s for sure.

I also have a couple new additions. This little deeper orange guy is cool.

And, this pink and red dapple replaces my sweet peppermint colored one.

This one has neat red and white coloring. It was the closest thing to peppermint I could find.

It funny how much less fragile poinsettias are after a summer in the garden. These guys are bloomed as throw aways. I’m guessing I’ll loose more, but still excited to see which ones choose to stay.
