A year on,
After a plain green summer of quiet growth
With thicker, woody stems, and deeper roots
It has changed, gradually …
Smaller blooms but more numerous
A real poinsettia?
I was noticing that the new poinsettia I bought for this Christmas seems to have out grown its strength and lost its leaves very fast. Last year’s is still going strong, after a year of quiet and unspectacular difficult moments and steady growing, it seems to have developed a less showy and more authentic resilience.
