Poinsettia. The poinsettia from Christmas 2005 has colored. I didn't do much to it in 2006 - I put it out side in a shady spot, watered & fed it a bit and mostly ignored it. I usually do a little trim, but I couldn't make a decision whether to trim when I put it out in spring or when I brought it in last fall. Soooooo, I did nothing. Sometimes, the lazy gardener takes over.

The new poinsettia from this past Christmas has expired - frostbitten in it's travels I'm sure. I still have it in the house. I guess I'm hoping for some kind of resurrection. The perennials & shrubs out in the garden usually have to be dead about a year before I remove them - hope springs eternal.
