Poinsettia Brooch for After the Holidays

poinsettia brooch

If you give them some neglect and yet don’t completely forget them, poinsettias can last for years. They probably won’t flower again. To get them to flower you have to be really strict at the 12 hours of darkness and then 12 hours of light. Not so easy to pull off in the Canadian winter when it is fully dark around 5:00PM. But, I have kept a poinsettia plant alive for years. Then I moved and all my plants died from some kind of fungus (even the cactus got it).

Poinsettias are one of my favourite Christmas things. Most years I find a new poinsettia brooch. This year I didn’t find one in time for the holidays. I really like this one, but I don’t want to spend more on the credit cards. So, I will settle for having it’s picture up instead.
