Every Christmas I buy beautiful Poinsettia plants and every year I try and keep them alive for the next Christmas. Last year I managed to keep them alive until August. Then I made the mistake of putting them outside for some sunshine and of course forgot to bring them inside again. Wouldn't you know it we had a severe frost for the next couple of nights and that finished them off.
So this year I'm going to nurture them throughout the winter and not buy new ones this Christmas. I don't think they're looking particularly good at the moment but let's all keep our fingers crossed.
I think I'll need to go googling later tonight and refresh my memory with what I'm meant to be doing.
And now for some exciting news...they did find my money for my new and exciting thing and it is being delivered on Thursday...YAY!!!! 2 more sleeps.
