This poinsettia has been very much neglected as I’m not very good with houseplants and yet here it is with the desired red leaves at the correct time of year. This somewhat amuses me as the gardeners would say I need to put it in a darkened place, refuse it water and eventually it’ll produce the red leaves and yet having done none of this (it sits on the windowsill all year) round it’s happily performed for me.
