  •  I rescued a half-dozen poinsettias (4+ / 0-)

    from a dinner I attended around Christmastime in 2011.  There was a little 4" pot containing a poinsettia on each table as part of the centerpiece.  After the dinner I asked the wait staff what was going to happen to the poinsettias and was told they were just going to be thrown away (Horrors!)  So my friend and I scooped up as many as we could carry away.

    They're in my greenhouse now, having been moved there after turning red last fall.  They're gorgeous, and they're enormous.  I had no idea they would get so big.  Right now they're taking over most all the space in the greenhouse that the bouganvillas haven't already commandeered.
