Christmas Rescue 2020

By Published On: December 30th, 20200.6 min readCategories: Photos, Projects

In keeping with a long tradition of saving post-Christmas plants from the trash bin, this year’s rescue is a 93 cent bargain. It’s 4-inch tall poinsettia in a silver 2-inch pot that’s definitely seen better days. It has one green leaf and a few red bracts still hanging on, probably because they’ve been sprayed with glitter glue. The glue has also attracted what looks like cat hair (or worse).

My record’s pretty good when it comes to nursing abused poinsettias back to health, but I have to admit, I think this one’s iffy at best. We’ll see how it goes. If we’re lucky, it’ll be back for one more Christmas indoors before I find it a good permanent home outside.

I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
