    Gorgeous pointsettia. We only ever seem to have them at Christmas in the UK, and they are specially cultivated to produce those wonderful colours. Lovely photos.

      Thank you 🙂 we usually have them during winter, for about three months, but some people can make them live in their gardens for years! They probably have a magic touch 😉

        They rarely last long in pots here. Most people are throwing them out soon after Christmas. We’ve managed to make a few last until early summer on occasion. I’m always sad to see them die off … they’re lovely when at their best. 🙂

          Until early summer! Despite all my goodwill here it would be like a “mission impossible” .. 🙂

            We have one particular windowledge, where the conditions must be just right for them. They seem to linger on for ages – some longer than others. 🙂

              Maybe there they feel at home 😉
